I didn't know it either, giving blood can actually be good for you, not just for your humanitarian side, but your insides too!

GIVING BLOOD IS GOOD FOR YOU:

  • Helps prevent heart disease
  • Endorphins increase when you do a good deed and this is good for you
  • It lowers the iron build up in your blood
  • You lose a pound when you donate a pint :)
  • Your body makes newer blood cells to replace the ones that you donated (newer blood cells are more flexible and flow better throughout your body
  • And its like getting a mini check up as they have to test your blood to make sure that it/you are not sick

REASONS TO GIVE BLOOD:

  • Someone in the US needs blood every three seconds
  • Trauma victims can go through several pints of blood an hour
  • If eligible blood donors would donate blood every 4-6 months there would likely be no blood shortage, yet today there is.
  • "The Greatest Generation" viewed donating blood as a Patriotic duty
  • 60% of the American population will need blood at some point in their life (less than 5% donates)
