The 2015 St Augustine Blood Drive and You

Click here to search our featured Jacksonville/St Augustine homes for saleThe 2015 St Augustine Blood Drive needs you to bring your healthy body to Ameris Bank on Saturday.  Don’t worry about who’s taking your blood, though.  Trained professionals will be on-site to take care of that.  You just need to make sure that you are well hydrated (16 oz of water is great) and well rested (7 to 8 hours of sleep) before you come down to make your donation.  Also, make sure to eat a healthy meal before you donate blood.  You can start by eating iron rich foods over the next couple of days, including red meat, poultry, fish, spinach, raisins and beans.  That will really get the blood pumping.  And avoid fatty foods because they can throw off the testing done on your blood.

For every one pint of blood that is donated, three lives can be saved.  And it doesn’t cost you a thing to generate the stuff!  Visit the American Red Cross website here to get some great tips for a successful donation before you head out to the drive on Saturday.

The 2015 St Augustine Blood Drive needs you now.  You can actually be a real life superhero simply by donating blood.  And it will only take about an hour or so out of your day.  I think that is well worth the time!  Besides, anyone who donates blood at the 2015 St Augustine Blood Drive will receive a free ticket to the St Augustine Pirate Museum, the Colonial Quarter and the First Colony.  Are you going to donate?  Let me know in the comments below.
