Human blood is needed in and around Roswell everyday -- including today. We don't need a tragedy like an ice storm, tornado or hurricane. It could be a family member, a friend, or you, that "life happens" and there you are, needing blood.
This week is our turn. This is Roswell Rotary's turn for "Sleeves up." And if it can't be you, because many of us can't give, then you can help by getting a friend, family member or fellow employee to donate during the "Pint for a Pint" blood drive for the American Red Cross. The life you save is not likely to be yours; and if ask any religious leader, such a generous offer of getting someone to donate blood for the benefit of someone you don't know is one of the highest degrees of giving charity, like most donations to Rotary Foundation.
Whoever donates blood will get these benefits:
- Pint for a Pint: Thanks to Pat Rains and Gate City Brewery, whoever gives a pint of blood gets a gift of a pint of beer -- to be enjoy anytime over the next 6 months!
- Our friends at Amazon are adding in a $5 Amazon.com Gift Card
- Red Cross will do a blood test and notify you if you test positive for the COVID-19 antibodies
- and of course, you'll feel better knowing you helped keep Roswell awesome!
