It's brother to brother and it's man to man- My Brother Esau

I don't know if you've ever needed blood. I did once. I remember the people who gave it. Friends, family and co-workers. With much gratitude, I also remember the strangers for their selfless gift to me. Phil Lesh is donating $10 to The Vattikuti Urology Institute for each pint of blood donated by the end of the year. If you have the chance, please do it. It could mean so much to so many.
Thank you and have a Joyous Holiday and Peace-Filled New Year.

Wonderful thought Helen. Now to take action and do it. That's my resolution. Do it.

I've never needed blood, but two of my kids have. I try to donate whenever I can, but it ends up not nearly as often as I'm eligible. Especially since they usually end up taking plasma, which you can donate something really often like every 2 days or something...

Happy Holidays!

Hey that's pretty cool. I've needed lots of blood, I am a Hemophiliac. My parents gave me a newspaper clipping of one Valentine's Day I needed lot of blood when I was in Boston Childrens Hospital and a bunch of my parents friends went up to Boston to give blood.

And like Phil, I have Hepititis C also...from all that blood (before screening).
