Give Blood

4 posts in this topic

All,

I know by now, all probably are aware of the bridge collapse on 35W in Minneapolis. I am asking all that are able, to give blood to your local blood center. The blood bank was low before this happened, and now it is drastically low.

I know this isn't a normal post on this site, but I feel the circumstances call for it.

Thank you in advance,

Gregg Maloney

This is a great idea but not just because of the bridge incident. If you've never done it, don't be anxious about it. It only takes a few minutes and the insertion doesn't feel any worse than if you pinch yourself but the benefits are way too great to ignore.

I didn't start giving until my late thirties and now give twice a year; working on my second gallon.

I have been donating for close to 30 years(yeah that does date me a bit) and I am not sure how many gallons I have donated to date. I would be heading down to donate a pint, but I just donated last week and they only let you donate ever 56 days. It really ain't a big ordeal to donate, they even give you cookies after you donate grin.gif

The pain from the poke is not that bad and only lasts for a few seconds. The big thing for me is you just never know if and or when a pint of blood you donate may make the difference between someone surviving or not. I would rather it be there just in case.

      The forum has do much more than fishing reports, hot bites, etc.  There's been more general and specific fishing  techniques, information and connecting with each other that has happened  here.     I can get hot bite information in a lot of places.  In fact many hot bites never do up on these forums.  Sounds like you've got a lot of information in a lot of places.   That's great!  Many of us have done the same thing.     Many of us have got together on the ice, in the woods or on the water because of.this forum.  That's what I've always enjoyed the most.     Hope to be able to keep doing that for a long time.

      Correct.  You can throw him a buck or two to keep the road graded and all is good.  At least that's my understanding.
