1st Time Donor 7/365

Red Cross donation, originally uploaded by ElementaryTechTeacher.

The quality of this picture stinks but the reason behind the picture is great! My son planned on donating blood this afternoon and I had an appointment for after school. But when today turned into a snow day my daughter, 16, decided she was ready to give it a try. So off we went to the local blood drive. She was greeted warmly and given not one but two stickers so everyone would know she was a first timer. She was a little nervous but did great. When it's time for her to donate again they'll be at her school for a blood drive. Maybe she'll be able to talk her friends into donating as well. I hope this will be the start of a life long habit for her.
