30 Days of Thanks | Day 3 – Blood Donor

Today I am thankful that I am a blood donor. I am also thankful to all of the other people who unselfishly give their time to donate. Each time you donate blood, you are helping three people.  Your donation helps in so many ways.  It will help patients who are having surgery, people with blood disorders and even people with cancer.  Only 5% of eligible donors actually donate blood.

Today, I visited the Mayo Clinic Blood Donor Center for the 25th time.  I have donated three gallons so far and received several gifts, but the best part is the cookies you get after your donation!

If you have never donated blood, please consider it.  As the sign on the wall in the donation center says, “Precious Gift, Precious Life.”  You could be making a huge difference in someone’s life 🙂
