Donating a part of your life

Giving blood at a mobile blood drive for the first time in a good while. I give double red cells, so I usually have to go to the main Red Cross donor site, but this one, which is much closer to home, had a double-red appointment. Of course, it's the first one, at 9 AM, after me working until almost midnight the day before, but here I am, connected to Duke's research visitor wifi, halfway through a donation session. A great start to a day off.

I highly recommend giving blood, and the red cells make your donation go further. Plus, they give you free snacks which, as everyone knows, are free of all caloric content. It's a win-win for dieters!
