Archives For red cross

I co-hosted “PA Live” on WBRE with Monica Madeja on Friday, August 24. We talked about Lance Armstrong, the volunteer efforts of a local American Red Cross chapter, and received some workout lessons from a local kickboxing studio.

I’ll be hanging out at The Radisson in downtown Scranton this Wednesday with the American Red Cross. Winter is a tough season for blood donations, but the demand for it in local hospitals remains steady. Come out this Wednesday afternoon and donate. You’ll save a few lives, we’ll feed you, and enter you in a drawing to win a 42″ Plasma TV.

Seriously, what more could you ask for? Call 1-800-GIVELIFE and set up an appointment.

did you know that you can save up to three people’s lives with just one unit of blood?

this was taken before the big moment, as i answered questions and had my blood tested for iron. i’m the biggest baby in the world, and even i’ll admit, it wasn’t bad at all. didn’t faint. even received free pizza and refreshments. the staff is great, and they’ll take excellent care of you.

no, i did not give blood. if you remember, i haven’t slept much, and consequently don’t feel well. combined with the fact that tonight i’ll be here long after my midnight signoff, and i didn’t think needles and losing blood were factors needed in the forecast.

but here’s a few pictures from my perspective. i will be giving blood in the near future. and you should too. afterall, you could save three lives with one donation.
