Okay, I had to return some library CDs (they got missed going back a few weeks ago) and right beside it was the mobile blood bank. I’d always wanted to give blood but never knew where to go, plus I wasn’t sure if I could with the Factor 5 gene that I have (makes you more likely to have blood clots). Anyway, turns out the gene would be okay but since I’ve had a blood clot they say it’s too risky for me to donate. But they did tell me to tell all my family and friends – so here I am asking all my cyber (and real-life) friends to please donate blood if you’re able. I’m sure you can look them up the telephone book if you don’t know where your local place is.
