early Christmas presents

Today we three Mays delivered nine early Christmas presents in the form of blood donations. It was Wesley's first time and he came through the experience unscathed. While we were having our juice and cookies post-donation, one of the volunteers told us we were giving presents to three people each. It felt good to know that we could be making a difference to someone's life...especially at this time of year.

If you give blood on a regular basis, way to go. If you have given before but haven't in a while, please consider getting out to a clinic over the holiday season to help out. And if you have never given, please think seriously about checking out the Canadian Blood Services website and seeing if there is a clinic coming up in your area.

If you don't live in Canada, please consider making a donation through the blood services programs in your country.

Wishing you and yours a very wonderful holiday season.

Happy Holidays everyone!
