|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.|| |
