I’m a disaster training manager, and I give blood

“I love being able to donate blood. It’s my very special gift to those in need. My blood is very common and very rare at the same time. Less than one-half of 1 percent of the world’s population has the same blood that I do, but I am also C+ so many people can receive it. It is so wonderful to be able to donate such a valuable gift.

When I donate, I can chat with others who feel the same as I do, and with the people at the American Red Cross who make donating so quick and easy. I can look up drawings and pre-register, and I can do the Rapid Pass online, too. I have donated more than eight gallons so far, and I have more to give. I encourage everyone to try donating and giving the gift of life and love.”

— Montana volunteer Alice Klundt
