A gift...

I just called the American Red Cross today to schedule my regular appointment to give blood. This coming April 21st I will have given three gallons, which, according to the Red Cross' calculations, means I've helped save 72 lives. I'm not trying to toot my own horn because I was shocked at the number myself and also reminded how valuable a donation can be. If I do nothing else with my life I'm glad I was able to do this. Perhaps you might consider this as a ministry as well.

If you're interested in helping others by donating blood please call 1-800-448-3543

Father, bless,

Thank you for your donations, and for a good reminder that I should do that as well.

Very cool, Father. I'm a 35 year donor also...it is a worthy cause. Amen!
