Well it is Thanksgiving in Australia today (in the USA tomorrow – well kind of, we all know that confusing date line thing). Anyway, it is a pretty good day to stop and reflect on what we have to be grateful for – as opposed to what we can moan and complain about. So to celebrate Thanksgiving I am dragging a good buddy of mine down to the local blood bank.
We are both fortunate enough to be healthy, with a roof over our heads and a plenty to eat for us and our families, so what better way to give thanks for all of the good things in our world than to help other people whose lives are not so fortunate. In Australia the demand for blood is HUGE. With Thanksgiving today, Christmas around the corner and a lot of people in need, why not grab a mate and bleed together! It’s time to BLEED WITH A BUDDY.
