There's not a single good reason to donate blood -- there are actually three good reasons to donate blood.
That's how many people benefit every single time you give the "gift of life." Your blood's components (red cells, platelets, and plasma) can be separated out to help save hospital patients with a wide range of needs -- burn victims, cancer and leukemia patients, trauma cases…. The lists is long.
So, please make an appointment at our blood drive next Monday, February 7, 8:00 am to 2:00 pm, in the Fitness Center. Email firstname.lastname@example.org or stop by the Campus Center February 1-4, 11:00 am-2:00 pm to sign up.
You are eligible to donate if you meet the following criteria:
- Are at least 17 years old
- Weight at least 110 pounds
- Your last donation was on or before December 6
- Have not traveled since 1980 for more then three cumulative months in Great Britain or six cumulative months in Europe.
Be sure to eat well the day of donation, drink plenty of fluids, and a get a good nights sleep.
Thank you for your generosity.
