On Wednesday, Dec 2nd I’d like to ask for your help. In honor of my 46th Birthday the Puget Sound Blood Center is helping to coordinate a Blood & Food Drive.
- Date: Wednesday, Dec 2, 2009
- Times: 11am-8pm (noon-3pm is currently reserved for my party donors)
- Goal: 46+ Donors

Give a Pint, Give a Quart – Give Both!
This is a blood drive first and foremost. However, it’s also a food drive. If you can’t give blood this time --- no problem. Give a gift of food for the Renewal Food Bank – this is the partner organization to the Puget Sound Blood Center. The Bellevue Donation Center will be accepting non-perishable food donations.
Why do this?
If you have watched my Give a Pint – Save a Life video you already know that blood donation has been a part of my life for some time and has had a direct impact on my family.
A Little Competition
We are competing with other donation teams to bring in the most donors for the two-week blood and food drive competition. In particular, we’re trying to exceed Julie Burrell of Vancouver, WA. She got 63 donations for her 50th Birthday. I know the Seattle Community can rally together. Maybe we can even break 100 donations. Are you in?
What if you can’t make it?
No problem. If you cannot make it on Dec 2nd of don’t live in the Seattle area we still can use your help. If you donate blood or drop off food wherever you live just drop me a note or comment on this blog post. Every Drop Counts!
If you need one last thing to get you to sign up keep this in mind:
It’s my Birthday! This will be your gift to me and many, many others. I hope to see you in Bellevue on December 2nd or see a note from you that you donated in your home town and gave to your local food bank too.
Thank you in Advance for your time and effort.
