Giving a chance to save a life

Yesterday was the Red Cross Blood Drive. Although I completely forgot about the date Red Cross was suppose to arrive, I was still excited. In my lifetime I’ve given blood four times so far. Just the thought that the pint of blood I give will save lives makes me feel good inside. As I was walking to sign up desk for my blood to be drawn.

The women at the desk asked “Do you have your blood card”.

I said “No.”

So she asked “Do you have any government ID or CCBC ID.”

As I checked my pockets I recalled that I had forgot my wallet at home. Since I had no ID, I couldn’t give blood which made me feel disappointed. You’d think I’d give up but I didn’t, instead I rushed to the enrollment services to see if I can get a replacement ID. But unfortunately, I couldn’t get the replacement ID without paying $5 and I couldn’t pay for it since my wallet being home. It was a lost cause but at least I tried and learned to allows carry a wallet. If your like me and missed giving blood at CCBC yesterday there are other places to donate like:
