As the first month of the year comes to a close, how have you been doing on your New Year’s Resolutions? Have you been making progress? Or are you beginning to backslide? If you had a resolution to give back, volunteer, or positively impact your community this month brings a great way to stay on track. January is National Blood Donor month, and is a great time to head to one of your local blood donation centers to make a difference.
Why are blood donors so important? Every three seconds, someone requires a blood transfusion. Yet even with all of the advances being made in modern medicine, we are still unable to manufacture blood. That means the only way people in need will receive this vital flood is if other, healthy people are willing to give a little of their time and blood to help.
A whole blood donation will take only a pint of your blood, and just fifteen minutes or less of your time to gather that amount. Your body is easily able to replace the pint in twenty-four hours. One blood donation can save up to three lives, so do not miss your chance to make a crucial difference at a crucial moment by donating blood this month. Stores of blood run low in the winter, so it is an important time to donate.
After you donate blood to save a life, make sure your own life is protected with great health insurance coverage.
