Bloody good time!

Not that any of you live close by to me but my Auxiliary is hosting another Blood/Bone Marrow Drive and I'm inviting you anyway.

I have preached to you guys before during the A to Z challenge...D is for Donate Life.

Does it mean a lot to me? Yes.
Do I let the drive take over my life for a month? Yes.
Do I wish that everyone would donate? Yes.
Do I wish that people would stop giving me lame excuses why they can't? YES!

Afraid of needles. * Who isn't?
I'm too busy. * To save a life?
I don't have enough blood to spare. * Yes, you do.

If you can't or won't donate it's simple. Just say I am unable to donate.

I'm not going to ask you about it. It's none of my business.

You still want to help? Tell someone else.

That's it. I promise not to smite you or tell you that you're a horrible person.

Lot's of people can't donate but everyone can spread the word.

Hopefully we will have a good turnout. You just never know. We've had some really great ones and then ones where we can hear crickets chirping for six hours.

Can't stay. We are heading out to get school supplies for First Grade!


Sing it with me...

'It's the most wonderful time of the year...!'

But, before I go, I want y'all to check out Alex J. Cavanaugh's blog today. He is talking about starting an Insecure Writer's Support Group!


  1. Good for you! And good luck! My ambulance company sponsors a blood drive every six months or so. The turn out is usually pretty good.


  2. That's so awesome!! good luck!

  3. Hope it's a big success! And thanks for mentioning the Insecure Writer's Support Group.

  4. Dan - Thank you. I'm crossing my fingers.

    Jess - Thanks. I appreciate that.

    Alex - Thank you. Me too! I think the IWSG may be getting pretty big!

  5. good for you. i'm so proud! and i will donate when the drive comes to our town, just for you!

  6. Wish I was there. But, since I'm way down here I donate to the local blood connection when they have the drive at the schools.

  7. Good on you! Hope it goes well this year :)

  8. Tara - That would be awesome! Thanks.

    Donna - Every drop counts! Thank you.

    Jeff - Thanks!

    Rhonda - Me too.

    I'll let you all know how we did.
    Thanks for stopping in!
