A family member of a friend is in a really rough way.
From where I am, there is little to nothing I can do.
Anyway, I figure this is something that is played out across the nation, across the world, hundreds of thousands of times over at least. So while I can’t help this person, I can help somebody’s loved one.
So I’ll be off to the bloodmobile in this person’s name. My blood won’t go to this person, but it will go to someone, or several someones, and might make all the difference in the world.
And I encourage you to do the same, or (if you can’t, for whatever reason) to pass the message along.
In the US, the Red Cross number is 1 800 GIVE LIFE. In case you want to find out where you can give.
