I MAY OR MAY NOT BE A SAVER OF LIVES… YOU CAN TOO!!!

February 15, 2014 | By | No Comments

Friends, because of MNU I may or may not be a saver of lives.
So you may be thinking, “Mario, you are one arrogant person. What in the sweet Fritos are you talking about?”

Well friends, MNU has consistently hosted American Red Cross Blood Drives. Last year, I donated blood for the first time first semester. The second time was Spring semester and then this past week, was my third time. Each time it’s been a pleasant and worthwhile experience. This is despite the fact that I am like most people and not Needles’ number 1 fan:

Needles never fail to poke...

But truly friends donating blood can save people who need blood transfusions. Perhaps a person got into an accident, and had a lot of blood loss. Well, with the donations from people just like you and me, you could prevent them from any further devastation!! This is a real thing peeps.

 

In my high school we would have Blood Drives. At the institution of higher learning that I attend, keeping the support for Blood Drives has not diminished. And that is a good thing:

Thumbs up

For most people, it is a pleasant experience. Just look at this guy giving blood:

 

After the initial poke, the blood just flows into the bag. And on my lap was my Sociology textbook.

Speaking of Sociology, here’s Bo Cassel the Chair of the Sociology Department:

Plus friends, when you donate blood you get to eat goodies like these:

 

Cheez-It Crackers are where it's at!

And Yes, they give out stickers!!!!

Plus it’s great quality people that work at these Blood Drive donations that help keep the people(like myself) keep coming back for more.

So look up RedCross.org/Donation or call 1.800.733.2767.

It’s a good idea think about it friends. You can literally be a life-saver.

Until next time, Peace in the Middle East and know that you are loved.

P.S. Here are some pics of the injection, and a video of the needle being removed. For the sake of others, I will not put any of the pictures that I think could cause Simply more controversy.

So they lather on some Iodine, a strong disinfectant, and I get to have a some yellowy orangy stuff on my arm.

And for viewer discretion I am not posting a pic of the needle actually inside of them. But here’s a video of Stephen taking it out!

 

Ultimately Friends, it is Christ that saves lives. Predominantly He uses people to do so.
