Be Impulsive to Save a Life

As a busy mom, my time to volunteer for my community is at an all time low, but my drive and need to help is stronger than ever. With small children in my care and a packed schedule, my opportunities to make the world a better a place often fall within the walls of my home.

If you are like me, you might be struck by an urge to Be Impulsive from time to time. Blood donation is the ultimate way to be impulsive and change the world, for people in need of life saving blood.

Did you know that every 2 seconds, a transfusion of blood is needed? Donated blood helps save so many lives; pregnant women and babies, patients with major illnesses and accident victims to name a few.

It is a fact that one of seven people entering the emergency room needs a blood transfusion. With such a need for life saving blood, there is always a good time to donate.

Blood can be donated every 56 days. That means 6 times a year you and I have the opportunity to save 3 lives. In addition to donating blood you can also donate plasma, which has the same lifesaving effect and is in even greater need. Plasma contains important proteins and nutrients which help treat severe
burns, traumas, blood clotting disorders, organ transplants and premature infants.

This year, as the kids go back to school and busy parents find a moment for themselves, please let me urge you to take a few moments out of your day and do something good, for people in your community.
