10th Time!

Finally I had already reached 10. You guys might be wondering what is that 10 all about? Well, I have just donated my blood for the tenth times. Of course it might not be a big deal to any of you, but for me it sure is. It is a milestone to me, at least in my life! =)

I'm sure millions if not thousands have donated their blood. Kudos to them and a big pat on their backs. You guys are the saviours, and please don't stop donating okay? It's a noble deed. For those who are eligible to donate but didn't do so...I'm sorry to tell you this, but shame on you! And for those who dreaded to donate but not able to, don't despair. At least you wanted to donate your blood right?

Well, for those of you who don't have the slightest idea why blood donating is so darn important...let's put it this way:

Every day someone depends on blood for life. A mother who is delivering may need a lot of blood supply due to bleeding; A teen who's leg got amputated needed massive blood to save his life; a middle-age patient battling with leukaemia needs replenishment of blood almost everyday and a petite adorable little girl who is suffering from hemophilia needs the blood that you donate so that she can grow up to live like all of us.

What on earth will happen if one day there's no more blood for these poor souls? Can you even conceive about it? Do you give a damn? So you still won't donate your precious blood that run through your veins?

What if...the mother that i spoke happens to be your wife? What if the teen that is dying is your son? What if the man on the bed is your dad? What if the little girl who yearning for your help is your little sister? Do you want to let this happen to your love ones?

Remember: What comes around goes around. Anyway I wish you guys will make it a habit to donate your blood. For those who always have, thank you. And yeah, Alanis Morissette wanted me to thank you too. Have a nice day! =)
