Give Blood

Today is Griffin's 6th birthday and I've made it an annual event to ask for your blood.


Griffin was born 9 weeks premature on January 22, 2003. He had two lifesaving transfusions. Before any transfusion took place someone did something amazing, they donated a little time and a little of themselves. Please do the same. You can find a local donation site by calling 1-800-GIVE-LIFE or visiting http://www.redcross.org/.





We've come a long way from day one, because someone knew how important it was to give blood.



Yes, we let him get a faux hawk. It was an acceptable compromise from the mohawk, with the sides of his head painted red, he really wanted.

My appointment is on 2/5 at 1pm. I give regularly...about 4-5 times a year. It makes it easy when work hosts blood drives. Sure, I'll go get blood extracted from my body for an hour rather than suffer through yet another meeting!
