Give Your Blood to THON Today
What’s with that blood stuff anyways? Apparently vampires don’t exist (damn you, Twilight), so we’re practically overflowing with that stuff. So what to do with it…
How about donating it THON? Today, from 10 am to 4 pm, the THON Kickoff Blood Drive will be taking place in Alumni Hall in the HUB.
Now, I know that needles were the bane of childhood existence, but you will be rewarded with a lot more than some lollipop that clearly isn’t a Blow Pop, or some multilingual Dora The Explorer sticker that screams “Let’s Go! ¡Vamos!” at the end. Those who donate will receive a $4 donation to The Four Diamonds Fund, which they can credit to the THON organization of their heart’s desire. Further, many of the children who are diagnosed with cancer will need blood during their treatment, some on a daily basis. By donating blood, you can help give life to the children who need it most.
So set aside that aichmophobia, and give THON a helping arm. Plus, if you can donate double-reds, you will totally be the coolest kid at the blood drive. Just remember to head directly down to Chick-fil-A for a few chicken sandwiches afterwards. Nothing gets those veins pumping like a deep-fried, boneless breast of chicken.
