This is a public service announcement... of some sort. The need for blood is real and at any time the blood bank only has a few days worth of blood in stock. It shouldn't be necessary for special appeals to go out every time the holidays come round or something happens where somebody needs blood urgently. All of us who are able to donate blood should be doing so on a regular basis which means at least 4 times a year, Today I donated blood for the 65th time and the fourth for the year. I'm a regular donor and you?
