Blood Donation Centers
Donating is not painful, but actually rewarding At only six-years-old, my grand-daughter, Natalie has faced greater medical obstacles than most grown adults. She had her first open heart surgery at five months, and after developing Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV), she had a second heart surgery at age five. Since her birth, Natalie has received three units of red blood cells, two units of plasma and has undergone several additional surgeries which resulted in more blood transfusions. Currently, Natalie is doing well. She is an extremely intelligent six-year-old that doesn’t let anything stop her. Natalie is still alive because of blood donation. I am now a frequent blood donor and Red Cross blood drive coordinator. In fact, i recently coordinated a blood drive that was dedicated to Natalie. There is a need for blood. Donating is not painful, but actually rewarding.

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.
