GOOD Citizenship Task 28: Make an Appointment to Give Blood #30DaysofGOOD

An easy thing you can do to be a good citizen.

Things are easier said than done, or so the old adage goes, and we couldn't agree more. That's why we do The GOOD 30-Day Challenge (#30DaysofGOOD), a monthly attempt to live better. Our challenge for February? GOOD citizenship.

Make an appointment to give blood.

My friend Claudette has given blood every two months as long as I've known her. I asked her why: "Because it's easy. Because I can. Every two months it's something I can easily do to give back to my community. I'm a universal donor (O Negative), so my blood is most prized, it's most needed. And I get a cookie and a sticker every time I give." She paused on the way out and said, "Give the gift of life, give blood."

Contact your local blood center today to make an appointment. What more basic way to be a good citizen.

And on that note, congratulations on completing this month's #30DaysofGOOD challenge. Thanks for sticking with us, and check back tomorrow to see the challenge for March
