I'm probably wearing out my welcome with you, but once more, here's my list of five reasons why you should consider donating blood.
5. It's painless. Seriously, it doesn't hurt. Yeah, they have to poke a finger with a little needle to get a sample, and that's kind of a drag. Aside from that, you hardly notice anything.

4. The people at the blood bank are awesome.

3. You really do get free orange juice and cookies!

2. You never know when you might need blood. Wouldn't it give you real peace of mind to know there was blood waiting should you need it?

1. You literally are saving a life. How many times today will somebody need blood right here in Grand Junction? How about the country? Will it be someone you know? A family member? Be proactive! Emergencies happen without warning, but that doesn't mean you can't be prepared.

When you donate, be sure to ask about the "Life Savers Club." This is a very cool program. When you join the Life Savers Club, you'll receive a way-cool punch card. There are ten notches on the card. Each blood donation gets you two punches. To complete the punch card, you'll need to donate five times in 2019. Upon completing the card, you'll receive a $20 Amazon Gift Card. Better yet, you'll get your name on the very prestigious wall of fame.
