Donate Blood - Save Lives

Taryn's Wreckreation Guide

October 16, 2017

I'll be the first to admit, I don't give blood as often as I should or could. With the recent tragedy in Las Vegas, I felt compelled to make it happen, so I scheduled an appointment with Bloodworks Northwest and I donated this past Friday.

 

As much as I love getting tattoos, I am not great with needles. In fact, I kind of hate them. But when it comes to donating blood, it's a small amount discomfort to help someone in need, potentially saving lives.

 

Our local Bloodwords Northwest had a donation center set up at the Stanwood Haggen in my hometown, so I made an appointment and the process was totally fun and easy. Not only that, but giving blood is such an important thing to do if you're able to contribute. If you don't believe me, take #54's word for it...

 

The ladies in the donation center were extremely friendly, upbeat, knowledgable and fun. All of the anxiety and stress I felt going into the day was washed away by their kindness and expertise! 

 

I was in an out in about an hour, and even snacked on cookies, goldfish and Gatorade while we talked about music, radio and where we were from. 

 

If you register to donate blood, you'll even be entered to win a meet and greet with Bobby Wagner of the Seattle Seahawks! 

 

It's EASY to schedule a donation, so get to it! I look forward to giving again soon, and you should, too!

 

Happy Adventuring,
