Need More Inspiration?

In March of this year I gave a speech at a Toastmasters district contest and I even recorded it in the hopes that people might see it later and be inspired to Give a Pint – Save a Life. If you have 6 minutes take a look at the video. Keep in mind that in less than 6 minutes you can sign up to donate blood. If you follow one of my suggestions in the video you might even be done donating blood in 6 minutes. Watch the video and let me know if you … Want to Race?

Get Started- Take the time to Sign Up!

Get signed up today. Tell your friends you signed up. Tweet about it and let your Facebook friends know you are doing your part to Give a Pint – Save a Life.
