Just got off the phone with the local blood bank (Stanford) and made an appointment for next Monday morning!

I used to give blood regularly, but somewhere down the line, I'd fallen from my schedule. Found out that it has actually been 4 years since I last gave blood.

I remember calling a year ago to give blood, but couldn't get through. Days went by, and I forgot about making an appointment.

A year later, phones are still busy (which is great!); but I was able to get through and make an appointment.

Just one small thing each of us can do to help make a difference.

Just kidding, but thought that might help this get some more views.

I've been meaning to do this myself for a couple of weeks now, and have been forgetting again and again. I'm making an appointment today when the Red Cross opens.

This is a good cause, and everyone who is able should log on to the URL above and make an appointment for themselves to give locally.

Five years ago, my allergies got bad. Now there is only a 3 month window in which I can give blood, but that's flu season and I usually have some sort of the sniffles. Bummer because I'm AB neg. Its supposed to be rare.
