My 100th Platelet Donation :) and donating yourself.

Hello,
Please Forgive me in using Meetup to share this information... It is important to me.
I am happy and somewhat proud to say that since 1990 I have donated Whole Blood / Platelets 117 times. As far as Platelets, I just passed my 100th Donation. For me and my lifestyle, donating to Lifesource is the best way for me to "give back". Not to mention, this give back saves lives. Personally, I just give Platelets in order to watch a free movie while donating :) Right???
If you are a regular Donor or not I ask that you consider donating. There are obvious benefits in donating as well as getting points with LifeSource's Brighten Life Program. Yes - they have a points program.

I happen to Donate Platelets and this type of donation happens to give the most points, I assume because it takes the longest other than the other types of donations. http://www.lifesource.org/donatingTypes.asp­
Your next question may be, what does he do with his points?.... I have purchased BP Gas Cards for my daughter with points before as well as donated back to the Brighten Life Program. Now you can get all sorts of gift cards. I plan to continue to donate Platelets and raffle off the gift cards at Meetup events from now on. As an example. events for charity. Such as one I am going to have. My November Meetup at the Fox and Hound will be for the Toys for Tots Program. This will be on Nov 15th.

If you find yourself wanting to donate, please help me as well to get points with the Brighten Life Buddy Program. It gives you and me points. All you need is to fill out a simple form that I can send you or you can retrieve from the Brighten Life site.

No matter what you decide to do, I hope you find a way to "Give Back" that work for you and those you are giving back to.
Thank You,
Paul
