Saturday was a gorgeous day at Liberty Station and thanks to the hard work of the folks at the San Diego Blood Bank we saw 18 donors and collected 18 pints of blood, saving 54 lives in our community. Eight of the participants were first time donors, which is fantastic! I gave blood at noon and was delighted to discover that they were showing Godzilla King of the Monsters! I literally didn't even notice when the nurse started the blood draw because I was watching Mothra. So much fun! AND, everyone who donated got a voucher for a free pint of Baskin Robbins ice cream. The best thing of all is that I had set a modest goal of collecting 30 donations in our first year of hosting the Bloodmobile. I am very happy to announce that we blew past that goal with 41 donations! Next Blood Drive is tentatively scheduled for March 2020.
