We are officially in the middle of the beginning of holiday season. While your planning what side dish you’ll bring to your family dinner tomorrow, I implore you to also spend some time thinking about how you can give to others this season. Giving financially isn’t always feasible, which is why I like to give blood. All it costs the donor is some time and blood, which their body will regenerate anyway. I am not an expert on blood donation nor am I a medical professional – please do not take my word as gospel. I am sharing my experience and the experiences of those around me to calm any fears you may have about donating and encourage you to get in touch with a blood donation center near you.
