Continuing a Legacy
Airman Tamarias Pope is one of the rare people with AB- (AB negative) blood, he didn’t like needles, but he still gave a blood donation. When he was visited by the Korean girl, You Jin Pak, to thank him for his blood donation. Ms. Pak had leukemia and needed the transfusion to get better, her blood type is very rare in Korea. Through organizations, she was able to get transfused with Airman Tamarias Pope’s AB- donation. In an interview, despite his loathe of needles he was happy to do it all over again. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DLbTVURlvhY
Promote the Cause
Kamenna works in a management consulting company. She has worked with Red Cross whenever she’s assigned to organize a blood drive event. As the organizer, she realizes conducting a blood drive event is a reason to demonstrate their humanitarian commitment for the community. It’s understandable if donating money during this financial crisis is too difficult. The corporate citizens can still make an impact by managing a drive that can save a lot of lives.
Hunter Denton didn’t fully realize how much his blood donation meant to people who receive it, he didn’t find out until his accident. When he woke up in ICU and was told he received 2 units of blood because of internal bleeding, a busted spleen and broken ribs; it dawned onto him how much those 2 units meant to him. He will continue to donate blood, this time with a heart full of conviction that it saves lives.
Hunter had this to say, “It all goes back to the individual person making one decision to give blood. That one decision, it being small, has a potential to change someone’s life” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A__S6DjL3jA
There is NO substitution for human blood when it comes to operations and treating a whole host of diseases. Don't let blood shortages become common place, support blood donation because you never know when you might need it!
