Giving blood is one of the easiest things a person can do to save lives. This is something I am passionate about. I have promoted the benefits of giving blood in my ezine and on the Everyday Giving website. I also donate blood. I know some people have been encouraged to give through my efforts.
I also have a friend, Nicolette Beard, who is passionate about the need to give blood. Nicolette produces an informative blog called man-o-pause in which she addresses issues that are important to men at midlife (like me). I encourage you to discover her thoughts on life purpose and the need to give blood at http://www.man-o-pause.com/manopause/2006/07/mans_purpose_in.html. I know even more people are being encouraged to save lives through Nicolette’s actions as well.
