Not as bad as I thought....

I feel bad to say that I have never donated blood....until an hour ago. Today at school, Carter Blood Care came and I joined some friends and donated for the first time. It was not as bad as I thought. Needles are never fun but a little pain for a great cause is ok with me. Did I mention you get cookies afterwards!!!

I must say....this was my favorite part of the entire ordeal! :)

I'm glad I took part in this today and I look forward to helping every year. There are so many people out there that are in the hospital and need blood and when you are healthy and going about your daily lives, you tend to forget about those less fortunate. I want to do less forgetting and more helping!!!
