FreeSpirit Yoga, is hosting their annual Blood Drive on Tuesday May 10, 2011. Only 38% of Americans are eligible to donate blood and of those only 8% do. That amounts to only about 3 out of every 100. Donating blood is a simple thing to do, but can make a big difference in the lives of others.
FreeSpirit Yoga invites the entire community to attend “Help Haiti Recover,” a fundraising event this Saturday that will include a silent auction, opportunity drawing, and music. All proceeds from the event will go directly to Doctors Without Borders.
According the Red Cross, lifesaving blood is needed by someone in the community every 10 seconds. What if giving blood was something everyone did on a regular basis, like eating at a favorite restaurant. What kind of difference would this make?
