Blood Donation Centers
There’s a link between donating blood and serving one’s country. That’s how I see it.
As a U.S. Marine, I feel that blood donation involves making a sacrifice for others. And that, is patriotism at its best.
I made my first blood donation in high school, and then started giving from time-to-time through local blood drives. Although my military service takes me far from home and the familar places where I usually give blood and platelets, I continue to do what I can to keep America’s blood supply strong. I routinely writes letters to the American Red Cross, and I am eager to share with others the importance of donating blood. And when I'm on leave, I visit the donor center where I've rolled up my sleeves in the past to give another donation. Hopefully I can inspire others to give for a lifetime.

Postagram Captures Red Cross Moments
Postagram captures Red Cross moments
During the holiday season, presenting blood donors can invite loved ones to follow in their footsteps and help patients in need or let someone know they rolled up a sleeve in his or her honor with a customized “postagram.”
1. Take a photo of a Red Cross moment, whether it’s lying on the donor bed, enjoying a post-donation snack or meeting a recipient.
2. Upload the photo at rcblood.org/holidaypostcard and add a message.
3. The postagram will be mailed anywhere you choose, courtesy of the Red Cross and Postagram.
