I gave blood today. This was my 24th donation since I started donating regularly in 2013. That’s three gallons! I give blood because I am able and because I know there are many people who aren’t able for a variety of reasons, whether they are health related or due to their life history (like my husband who grew up in Europe).
I give at the Stanford Blood Center. I would urge you to donate if you are able. You get free cookies when you are done.
