An easy thing you can do to be a good citizen.
\n<br/> Things are easier said than done, or so the old adage goes, and we couldn't agree more. That's why we do <a href="../../../tag/good-challenge"><i>The GOOD 30-Day Challenge</i></a><i> (</i><a href="http://twitter.com/#search?q=%2330DaysofGood"><i>#30DaysofGOOD</i></a><i>), a monthly attempt to live better. Our challenge for February? GOOD citizenship. </i><p> <strong>Make an appointment to give blood.</strong></p><p> 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."<br/><br/> Contact your local blood center today to make an appointment. What more basic way to be a good citizen.<br/><br/></p><div id="upworthyFreeStarVideoAdContainer"><div id="freestar-video-parent"><div id="freestar-video-child"></div></div></div><p> And on that note, congratulations on completing this month's #30DaysofGOOD challenge.
