As a Carmel Valley San Diego community resident, what is one way you can give to others that can have positive life-long lasting effects? On August 11, 2011, many from the Carmel Valley community donated blood at Piazza Carmel. We were fortunate enough to have a “Bloodmobile” park at one of our local shopping centers to make in convenient for us to give blood. That day, I watch as Carmel Valley San Diego community members from all walks of life, donated blood.
For most of us, we never really see the end result of donating blood. We leave the bus knowing that someone one day will use the blood. But I would also say that for many of us, we don’t really understand the magnitude of the ripple effect that this gracious donate of one’s blood can have on another individual…another one’s life. If you take a moment and think about the act of giving one’s blood. Some day, someone is going to have the very blood you have donated. Maybe the recipient will be a car accident victim or a police officer shot in the line of duty. San Diego Blood is a local organization that distributes the blood locally. The amazing thing for me is that when you donate your blood, you may very likely see the person who you donated the blood to,walking in the street and never know it. There’s a sort of connection that will forever exist between the donor and the recipient. Whether we know it or not, it is very encouraging to know that in San Diego County, we’re all helping each other and contributing to the lives of those around us via donating blood.
Some things to note in regards to donating blood (per San Diego Blood Bank):
