A special request to all of my camping friends (even the ones I havenít met yet). Besides being Casita
campers Joyce and I also serve as coordinators for our local Red Cross community blood drives. I keep getting requests to encourage people, who are able, to donate because blood is being distributed faster than it is coming in.
If you are able to donate, please locate a blood drive or donation center near wherever you happen to be and make a donation. You can add the Red Cross Blood Donor app to you phone and locate drives and make an appointment. In areas not served by the Red Cross you may have to use Google to locate a drive or donation center. You can also walk in and donate without an appointment.
Even when travelling Joyce and I donate when we become eligible (must wait 56 days between donations).
Since there is a need for blood every 2 seconds in the USA we can be sure that some of those in need will be fellow campers.
If you have questions about your eligibility please call 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767)
