Why We Should Donate Blood

Donating 450cc of AB blood to Red Cross

It was in 2008 that I first donated my blood and the feeling of possible helping others in times of need was so overwhelming that I wish to donate regularly. However, my sedimentary lifestyle and stressful work among others had made my wish vain.

So, I was quite consumed that I finally had my 2nd donation when my passion for running required me to take iron supplements allowing me to donate.

Why do we need to donate blood? Let me cite the following reasons:

  1. You get to do a mini - physical check up on your blood pressure, hemoglobin, pulse, body temperature;
  2. You get to help and save others;
  3. You can be priority recipients should you or your loved ones need blood;
  4. You reduce your heart risk.
Consider donating blood as your insurance to saving your life and others. The future is unpredictable, so, we need to invest on something worthwhile and this may include investing on the right education, business like when you buy gold bullion among others.

So, go to your nearest Red Cross Center and help save lives.
