Blood Donations

One cause that I am extremely passionate is donating blood.  I feel that this is something everyone can do and it benefits hundreds of people.  One pint of blood can save up to 3 lives and all you had to do was roll up your sleeve and relax for approximately 15 minutes.  Donations are then screened and if there are any issues the donor is immediately notified. Once approved, the blood is then stored in a controlled environment where it will be labeled and shipped for distribution.  Many hospitals in our general area receive local blood donations that are then used for surgery, trauma patients, and various other treatment plans.  A great site to visit for more information is:  www.lifesouth.org
