Be a pro-life hero


For those of you who, like me, have been unable to donate blood due to work/travel leading to time spent outside North America that exceeded cumulative times acceptable to the Red Cross, I have great news for you: The Red Cross has updated the blood donor eligibility guidelines this past March!

Go donate blood and/or consider apheresis! If you're African American, there's a special need for blood for transfusions to children with Sickle Cell Disease. Heck, why not go all the way and register with the National Marrow Donor Program (Black & African Americans have a greater difficulty finding suitable matches and more minority donors are needed badly).
