Donate blood!

Dear friends (especially those of you with few financial means),

We too can be a part of the great philanthropic movement that is sweeping the nation by donating blood and plasma. So long as you are a healthy adult who meets the eligibility criteria for the American Red Cross, go donate blood. This is a quick, safe, and immediate philanthropic effort. You will be saving lives, most especially after or during a holiday weekend. I challenge you all to donate your pint! 

Thank you friends! Now marshall yourselves and donate!

— Nadya

Dear American Red Cross,

Don’t call me at 8pm from a local area code. Also don’t assume I can donate blood. Please rephrase your question to: are you eligible and willing to donate blood at this time? The answer is: I am willing, but I’m not eligible at this moment. I have told your schedulers several times that I have to get clearance from my doctors and that I will call to make an appointment. I haven’t forgotten you. No, I can’t donate money right now, I’m a grad student with 30,000$ in hospital bills. Please, I will call once I know that it is safe for me to donate again, so stop calling me.

Sincerely,
Nadya
