The American Association of Blood Banks just awarded me a 3 Gallon Donor certificate! I started giving blood a long time ago because a friend of mine got a very rare kind of cancer at the age of 16. So I donate to the American Cancer Society… my way of doing something. While her mother was taking care of her, she came down with cancer and died shortly after that. Pretty sad.
Anyway, I encourage everyone to donate to your local blood bank every eight weeks! If you live in San Diego, visit the San Diego Blood Bank.
