Tricia's Pint Party

MY PARTY: I'm having a Pint Party!! I've teamed up with the awesome people at the American Red Cross to host a blood drive next week!! The dates and times are below. I'd really love to see us bring in 104 pints of blood but I need YOUR help to do it! Bring a friend, bring a co-worker, bring your mom or someone else in your family, but help me to help the Red Cross fill their shelves with blood. MY STORY: For years, I was scared to death to donate blood. I'm being honest. I admired the heck out of the people that did it, but I just couldn't. I was that typical too-afraid-of-needles person. After we moved to Chesapeake, there was a blood drive at my brand new church the first week we visited. Now try to ignore the corny factor, but I couldn't help but think that was the Lord telling me to donate blood!! So I called a friend the day of since Sexy Jim was out of town and he held my hand while I cried BEFORE the needle went in. Then we both laughed because it wasn't bad. I had wasted years of my life being afraid and now in a matter of ten minutes, I had become a hero. MY REQUEST: I'm asking you to open your mind and open your heart (and I suppose, open your vein). I'm not asking for money or clothes or food or even your kidney. Your blood donation can save three lives!! Don't assume you CAN'T give blood because you just got a tattoo or you were denied last time. Please, just come out to one of our blood drives next week and find out if you are eligible. Of the people eligible, only FIVE PERCENT actually donate blood. Come on!! Let's increase that number! Check out more information on the Red Cross website for "Tricia's Pint Party" and make an appointment to donate blood and become a hero!!
