une. saving lives

so there's this challenge that i have been told to do which is to write a blog everyday for the next 30 days and it seems as though many people are doing this so i though i would jump on the bandwagon and do it too. i'm hoping these will be interesting as holidays are coming up so i will have plenty of time to write them whether or not there will be plenty of content to write about is a diffent story, but here goes.

today i saved lives. i didn't go into a burning buliding or save someone from a wreckage or anything amazing like that all i did was donate blood. it took the whole of 5 and a half minutes to extract 470mls of blood from my puny arm. just by doing this someone is alive and it was so simple. then this afternoon i read that only 1 out of 30 people donate blood when 1 in 3 of us will need it. seeing this statistic upset me a bit, i understand that not everyone can donate but there are still millions who can who do not. only one in thirty people are donating blood! that is not enough. we need to suck it up and give back. so what you have to have a needle, toughen up. when that needle is going in imagine all those people in accidents or with cancer and what they are going through, they need our help and i am proud to say i have, and will, continue to give blood when i can. so should you. just think when looking at the bruise someone is alive because of you. it's a great feeling.


  1. Man, now i feel bad. I should totally donate shouldn't i?

    I'm really glad you are doing the 30 days of b-logging. The race is ooooonnnn.


  2. wow I did a blog in donating and yours totally trumped mine, it just shows how awesome you are
