this day in history...

February 4th, 1991 was the first time I ever donated blood......and passed out (which made me miss my lunch period! grrrr!!!) . Since that time, I have gone through bouts of donating totaling 15 donations. (Proud card carrying gallon club member) March 14th with be donation number 16. It is amazing to think that one of those pints may have saved a person's life, another may have made someones surgery possible, still another may have been used in research... and, the conspiracy theorist part of me believes, that another was used in some crazy government experiment involving cloning and there is a whole army of Melissa's roaming the Earth... okay, no, not really...

Give blood.
Start an army of YOU!
