...and this time, I'm not talking about beery pints but bloody pints. I can't speak for anyone else, but I've a few friends who during surgeries and emergencies received the life-affirming gift of donated blood. Without it...tis a horrible thought that they very well may not have survived. Blood doesn't grow on trees and it certainly doesn't just magically appear out of nowhere. Blood needs people and people need blood. I'm more than happy to promote this cause and even better, ALL donated blood stays in Vero Beach.
