we serve – Red Cross Blood Drive

100 lives. In one day 33 brave people were able to save 100 lives for 30 minutes of their time. It’s incredible isn’t it?

When you see the poster on the wall promoting the event or you recieve an e-mail in your inbox your first thought isn’t (at least mine isn’t) “man I can save 3 people’s lives today”. It’s more like” I’ve got so much work to do today how can I find the time.” or “Do I really want to get poked in the arm?”  But when I really look at it; I saved 3 lives today.

I’m not a doctor, I’m not a dentist. I don’t save lives.   I’m in Marketing, I spend my day trying to convince you how cool things are or why you can’t live without my product or service.  But not today, today I’m a life saver.  So thank you 33 brave life savers for giving up your time, your arm, and your blood. Thank you to everyone who volunteered who wasn’t able to give, all of  you made a difference today.

If saving lives isn’t cool enough, think how great Michelle Moreno felt she won a cheetah print Snuggie in the blood drive raffle.  Looking good Michelle!

We’re going to do it again in November and maybe next time you’ll get the chance to save a life.  If you’re not here at support contact your local Red Cross.

Give blood and save a life or maybe 3.
