It is about that time again, those of us who gave blood last time should be eligible to donate again. This is a quick and (almost) painless way for us to give back to the community. As before, I will set up a block of appointments for everybody who RSVP's to this meetup. Again, 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 (and I don't already know your full name), 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 who will be attending. Or, if you prefer, you are welcome to email me without making the meetup rsvp or even call the red cross to make the appointment on your own, whatever works best for you works best for me :)
I will plan on scheduling appointments a week in advance so if you would like to attend, please try to rsvp before April 19th to make things easier. As before, if you can't rsvp by this date but would still like to donate, I'm sure we can get you in with us. Once appointments are made, I will post everybody's specific time (they do 15 minute blocks) in the comment field on here.
Remember to eat a healthy meal before hand, drink plenty of water and bring a driver's license or state ID (and blood donor card if you have one). More information for first time donors can be found at the Red Cross's website.
I look forward to seeing as many humanists as possible helping out our community!
