I went to give blood last week and I was presented with a milestone badge – I’ve given blood 25 times. If you want to know more about the process of giving blood, you can read my blog post about it here.
I’m not one to wear pins or broaches very often so I wasn’t sure what to do with it. Then I figured that this was possibly one of the Red Cross’s ways of advertising. If other people see the pin, they might be inclined to ask about it and then decide to give blood as well.
So in the interest of spreading the word and encouraging more people to donate blood, I’ve pinned the badge to my bag. I wonder whether anyone will notice!
