You can make a HUGE difference today!

Well if you have been living under a rock for the last 9 months you may have missed the news that 2009 is the Year of the Blood Donor. I have been fortunate enough to be a donor for over 20 years and I strongly urge everyone who reads my BLOG to take an hour out and head down to your local BLOOD DONOR CLINIC.

Lots of people are worried about the needle – but believe me, I am a big woosy and I can deal with it. Plus, at the end of the donation you get as many great snacks as you want – all delivered with beautiful enthusiasm by one of the incredible volunteers.

Now if the snacks don’t get you – ¬†spend a few minutes exploring the official RED CROSS DONATE BLOOD site and you will see that there really are many, many, many good reasons to give up a bit of the precious fluid.

Sadly only about in 1 in 50 people will donate blood. Of course donating is a conscious decision – but receiving blood is less discerning. Knowing that your blood products can help a three year old little girl overcome cancer is pretty much all the prompting any of us should need.

OK – I don’t mean to be preachy, but please donate today. Grab a friend whilst you are at. If you do donate, do me a favour and come back to this post and tell me about your experience. I really appreciate it and so will the people who get your blood.

You can make a BIG difference.
