Grand Junction Colorado Needs Your Blood Donations ASAP
Pardon me, but could you spare some blood? A blood bank in Grand Junction, Colorado could really use it.
The St. Mary's Regional Blood Center in Grand Junction is running short on blood. They sent out an email this week asking for donations. Are you available to help out?
Urgent Email Sent Out Today
Earlier this week I received an email from the St. Mary's Regional Blood Center. This email was not the typical reminder to donate. This one came with a certain gravity. The email said:
Hello blood donor. We need your help. We have many appointments available and are having trouble filling them. Will you donate blood?
I'm Overdue To Donate
My last donation was almost four months ago. The blood center will call me when it's time to donate again. They called me about two months ago to remind me I was eligible again. Unfortunately, I was waiting for results from a COVID test and couldn't donate.
One Of The Most Rewarding Things You'll Ever Do (In My Opinion)
Trust me, it's quick, easy, and with the exception of this little pokey thing they stick your finger with, it's absolutely painless.

The one that gets me, though, is the fifth item on the list. This can happen at any time, without warning, maybe to someone you know... maybe even you.
