January is National Blood Donor Month: Time to Roll up the Sleeves and Give A Little Back

With the New Year many people have probably made resolutions to lose some weight, take up something new, but how about a commitment to save lives? January is national blood donor month, and we’re going to need all the help we can get.
Blood is a very important substance, obviously, but many people never take the time to go and donate. The truth is, donating blood doesn’t take very long, and is very rewarding to both the person donating and the person receiving the blood. Obviously the person who needs the blood will be pleased that their life has just been saved because someone took that one hour out of their day to donate. However, when you go to donate you get a feeling of accomplishment. After donating you know that you may have just given a person another shot at life. You must remember that it could be anyone that might someday need blood, a complete stranger, maybe a relative of yours, maybe one day, you will need blood.
However, blood supplies are low, especially during these winter months. Unfortunately, winter is the time of year when blood is needed most. There are many accidents occurring every day, this combined with those that need blood for different conditions, like cancer, or surgeries puts a lot of stress on the American Red Cross. Not to mention, blood only remains usable for about forty-two days, making regular donations necessary.
Giving blood isn’t some giant obstacle, like competing in the Olympics. It takes about an hour, and you can do it about six times a year (every eight weeks or so). So why haven’t you gone and helped save a life. As long as you’re seventeen and healthy you should try to donate every so often. If you can only donate once a year, that’s great. If you can donate twice a year, awesome. If you can donate the complete six times a year, that’s fantastic. Try to donate and give back to your community this year. Remember, “Ask not what your country can do for you – ask what you can do for your country.”
