FFS Blood Drive
By Dani R.
In accordance with the biennial Family Foundation School Blood Drive, the Red Cross was here again on Monday, August 20th; with their white lab coats, smiling faces, soft-baked cookies, and grateful hearts. The flyer reads “It’s a pint for you, but for another it could be a life saved.” It continues, “It feels good to give the gift of life.” Especially for The Family School students, it is remarkably rewarding and gratifying to offer a little bit of ourselves for the purpose of a greater good.
Talk about a “spirit of charity,” some kids actually had a meaningful programmatical experience. Senior Michael C., a doner, said, “It was absolutely surreal to know that my own blood will one day be pumping through the heart of another human being. A little pinch and a few minutes of my time is the least I can do to make a small, yet monumental, contribution to this world.” Live and let live; that’s what it’s all about.
