One of my favorite ways to give back to the community is by donating blood. It makes me feel good to do something so many Americans could do, but choose not to. Blood is something my body makes enough of to donate regularly. There is no other way to create blood.
The American Red Cross website has lots of information about donating blood. We all know how important blood is to patients in need, but what you may not realize is donating blood also has health benefits for the donor, too.
