Donate Blood In Rochester – Get Free “Ugly Sweater” Can Koozie
You've heard it before, you're going to hear it again. Mayo Clinic is asking for your blood. First time donor, haven't donated in a while...they need you!
Think of Donating Blood As Paying It Forward
The Mayo Clinic says this time of year its tough to collect blood because of seasonal health issues and scheduling time. On the flip side, even though fewer people donate, more people need blood. Winter conditions, celebrations, you name it.
When you're donating blood, yeah, you don't know who gets your blood, but that's the ultimate paying it forward, isn't it? You're helping someone you may never meet, and the goodness is in the selfless donation.
