there was just a blood drive in my neighborhood in Jerusalem just a few weeks ago. I couldn't donate because I just lost a lot of blood in surgery. So I stood and watched how men and women of all ages stood in line- the trucks were beyond full- waiting patiently to give blood. Watching this, I felt, I can't donate blood right now, but I could receive inspiration.

No Complaints

I was just thinking about all my little complaints, but then I watched your video. Guess what? No more complaints. Have a long, healthy, prosperous life filled with lots of love, from family, friends and people in general.

Thanks so much. I'm donating blood on Tuesday Im Yirtza Hashem!

An easy way to help save a life.

I was a volunteer firefighter / medic for 10 years, and I have been part of a team which had several confirmed "saves". Even though I am no longer able to do that, I can and do still help save lives: I donate blood. And having spent time in Israel does not exclude you from donating, or I would not be eligible. No excuses. It is not very painful, and it only takes an hour every couple of months.
