Blood Drive Countdown!

We are in countdown mode!  Just TWO more days until our big blood drive!  We are up to 86 appointments filled last time I checked.  That is AMAZING!  I am working on organizing all the goodies for the raffle.  We have some wonderful prizes thanks to blog readers, local friends and companies I contacted.  Some of the prizes include:
  • iPod nano
  • $50 gift card to ToysRUs
  • Gift Certificate to Mabel's Labels
  • Dog Training session
If you are planning to come, but haven't yet signed up for an appointment, that's fine!  There are still some appointments in the afternoon, or you can walk right in and we'll do our best to get you in as quickly as possible.  Schedule an appointment!

If you are giving blood, be sure to eat a good breakfast and drink plenty of water (even the day before - it's harder to find good veins if you are dehydrated).  If you are feeling ill (other than nervous about the poke!) please reschedule to donate another time.  Make sure to bring a photo ID.

Chris, Scarlett and I can't wait to you all there!


P.S. - If you can't come to our drive, but you gave blood, let us know via the pink widget on the sidebar.  We will post all the names we collect and a final total of donors at the end of the month!

Coming, scheduled, and I already started hydrating! I am super nervous (read needle phobia) but really want to do this. What the heck, I can always turn it into a funny story for my blog when I pass out! ;-)

Where is the drive you are hosting. In the past I have not been able to donate because I don't meet the weight requirement, but I think of and pray often!

I gave blood this morning and was in the chair next to Brandi. It made me so happy to see Scarlett as your mom walked by to show her off. She is truly beautiful and it was such a privilege to donate and help others in Scarlett's honor.

I donated in Anchorage, Alaska - I passed out in the lobby after donating - but it was still worth doing. Happy Birthday Scarlett!
