Today’s post is a public service announcement. After putting it off for way too long, I finally had time to pop over to the SA National Blood Service HQ next to the Provincial Hospital to do my second donation for the year, bringing my total up to 68 donations. It was wonderful to see the donation centre busy for a change and I hope it’s a good sign for the future. Blood is a scarce commodity and can’t be manufactured so all blood and blood products used in hospitals has to come from actual donors. Have you ever donated and if so, are you a regular donor? If not, why not?
