Let's give blood!

The time has come for us to extend beyond just having discussions and to start performing services to our community.  I think it will be a good idea for us to start donating blood as a group at the Red Cross.

I spoke to a representative from the Red Cross and in order for us to do this, we will need to make appointments a week in advance.  I am asking everybody who wishes to give blood to RSVP by Saturday February 9th so that I can set up our appointments.  Also, when making the appointments, I need to provide the Red Cross with everybody's names.  If you aren't using your first and last name on meetup, please email me privately either here or at [masked] with your real name and the name you use on meetup so I can set everything up without confusion (I promise I will not use your name for anything other than setting up your appointment).  Also, if you are RSVPing for more than one person, please send me an email with everybody's name is will be attending.

Of course, if you are unable to RSVP by the 9th and still wish to participate, I'm sure we can work you in but please make your best effort to confirm as soon as possible so this goes as smoothly as possible.

Remember to eat a healthy meal before hand, drink plenty of water and bring a driver's license or state ID.  More information for first time donors (such as myself) can be found at the Red Cross's website.


I look forward to seeing as many humanists as possible helping out our community!

    Nerma: Yes, I can start the appointments at 11:30 to accommodate your schedule. I will be able to provide more specific information in about a week when everybody puts in their replies.

    Jane: No, you will not need to call, I will call in and make appointments for everybody so that we can all go in together and have adjacent donation times.

    I love this idea, but think I will be out of town that day. I will let you know by the 9th if I can attend.

    Can I go 11:30 AM by any chance? My daughter has a basketball game at noon.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
