With the new year upon us, here’s an easy resolution to make and keep: Be a hero and donate blood.
My suggestion requires no special powers or gadgets, but you still may get to save a damsel (or even a Don) in distress.
In one hour – the time it takes the watch an “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” episode – you can donate enough to be a superstar in the lives of up to three people.
Who are these recipients?
They’re fighting cancer. Most of the 1.6 million people diagnosed last year will need regular blood transfusions during their chemotherapy.
