Today, UNC Chapel Hill had the winter blood donor drive. I try to volunteer at least once a year and also donate, if possible. It is important to keep in mind that blood donations are always needed and that blood donating is a free way to help out others. While it may be more convenient to just write a check rather than donate blood, in tough economic times there are plenty of opportunities to help others out without spending money and donating blood is one way.
If you are in the Durham / Chapel Hill area, please keep in mind that the UNC blood drive is open to the public for donations. Anyone can stop by and donate blood. They usually have small gifts for each donor and local restaurants provide food for the donors.
Today, the gift was a cute little soup cup with an adorable red spoon and a free recipe by chef Cat Cora.
