Saturday, the Red Cross came to OYCP so that we could donate blood. I was beyond excited knowing that you could save someone’s life just by donating blood! I was extremely nervous waiting to see if I was eligible or not. Once I found out I was I was eligible, I was so happy. It took me about six minutes to fill the bag, and then I got an awesome snack including juice and an ice cream sandwich. Donating blood to save lives was really rewarding for me and I will gladly donate again.
