I woke up one morning, drinking my coffee, checking my Facebook and watching the news. It was right after the Oklahoma tornado disaster. I realized that those people could not do any of that, and when they gave the number of the dead and injured children my heart sank. I have an 8 year old boy myself. The news stated that they desperately needed blood donations. So I called a bunch of friends and at the last minute organized a blood drive. We made a day of it by donating, then having a barbeque with a band playing. For most of us it was our first time donating. We now plan on doing more blood drives and getting more people to donate.
