World Blood Donor Day

Just dropping in to say today is World Blood Donor Day. If you live in Scotland and is fit and healthy, please consider giving blood today to save thousands of lives every year - please register at the Governments' Scotblood website today.

I personally donate both blood for transfusions as well as for platelet therapy. It can be slighly uncomfortable for about 30 minutes every two months or so, but in that time with no effort you will save someone's life. My blood type is one of the rarest in the world, so if you have a rare type or the universally useable O type, it is even more important to consider giving blood!

I will be showing you my best red manicure tonight to celebrate all the people all over the world who donate blood!
