Updated 3/2017 -- photos and all links (except to my own posts) removed as many no longer active. and it was easier than checking each one.

The earth quakes.  Haitians suffer. 
The world tweets updates, texts donations, waits anxiously wanting to do more.
The woman extends her arm willingly, squeezing a fist in gentle rhythm as the life giving blood flows.

*** Found in my blog drafts, decided to go ahead and publish it.

I used to donate blood like a champ. I was the Red Cross' go-to girl, when they wanted CMV-negative blood.

When I was pregnant, I was too anemic. Got denied a bunch. Gave up.

This post makes me want to try again. Maybe I can fit it in when I am off next week.

Thanks, Ramona!
