Donating Blood Is Good For Others & For One’s Own Health
Dear Friends & Neighbors,
(Please click on red links and note magenta)
Yes, there is a blood drive at Downtown Windermere today (Friday, May 16, 2014), between 10:00AM-4:00PM near the roundabout and the police station. If you hurry, there is still time! This blood drive is sponsored by One blood or Floridasbloodcenters.org If you are not anemic, donating blood is not only for a good cause but also is good for your health. Research has shown, below:
- donating blood can help reduce the risk of heart attacks and cancer
- donating blood can reduce iron levels which can thicken blood and increase free-radical damage
- donating blood is beneficial for weight watchers as people burn 650 calories with every pint donated.
So, don’t wait too long! The blood drive in Downtown Windermere will be until 4:00PM today. If your company or organization is thinking of running a blood drive, please feel free to contact: Floridasbloodcenters.org or call 1-888-9-donate (or 1-888-936-6283). They generally need about a month in-advance of planning.
