The party this year skews slightly vampirish because I’m asking all my friends to bring their blood. It’s a social media adventure started by @SWBlood on Twitter. They sent me a direct message asking if I would spearhead a drive. I gave them an enthusiastic yes and started pressing friends and strangers into service.
The online appointment scheduler has a couple of open spots, so get yourself signed up! We want to fill the day to keep the Puget Sound Blood Center-Vancouver busy. And while you’re laying there saving lives you can think about all the presents you gave someone that they never used.
I realize this gift costs you something—your gas, your time to get to the center, maybe a little anxiety, but what does it cost if we do nothing? It costs someone their life.
And if you can’t come to my party, I promise there’ll be another one. The Blood-Mobile shows up at some of the finest places with juice and cookies, rockin’ music and friendly, encouraging smiles. But today, you’ll get to party with me, and that doesn’t happen very often.
