Get More Than You Give

The beautiful photo above, taken in St. Patrick's Park in Dublin, was devised by abgc and seanandyvette to raise awareness about the Irish Blood Transfusion Service and World Donor Day, which is tomorrow (Tuesday 13 June). I gave blood today. It might seem a little scary, but if you can at all I completely recommend you donate. Blood is needed in huge quantities all over the country every week and your donation could save someone's life, so any squeamishness you might experience will be completely overshadowed by the warm fuzzy feeling you'll have after your visit to the clinic. Like the IBTS say, you get more than you give.
