I'm mortally afraid of hospitals and blood.... but I'm going to go and donate tomorrow. My wife is bringing me, and she'll give too.
One thing we'll all agree on, and I'm sure it would help the people most hurt.
I clipped the following text from the www.redcross.org website :
"........The Red Cross is ready to ship blood wherever it is needed.....The American Red Cross national blood inventory system is structured so that blood collected at any of its regions can be shipped to where it is needed most. The National Inventory Management System (NIMS), known as "the Hub," is located in St. Louis, Mo., and is the centrally managed, computerized inventory of American Red Cross blood supplies."
If everyone here at the forum can make a donation, that's a lot of blood.... and it's something that can actually make a difference in helping people stay alive.
