Please Donate Blood!

I don't know if you know this about me, but six years ago, I was rushed to the hospital. I lost so much blood that I needed six units. I would not have survived without blood donors, who I consider heroes. You are amazing for donating blood, if you ask me! :) Then, in 2012, it happened again. Unfortunately, I don't know if or when I'll need blood again. You can be a hero for others like me who never thought they’d need to rely on blood donations. Save the day. Donate blood with BloodCenter of Wisconsin. Just call 877-BE-A-HERO or visit www.bcw.edu/appt
