SPT Challenge April 28
The final self-portrait challenge for the month of April, as per Lelly of Lelly's Musings was to "Gift a Stranger".
The first idea I considered was to anonymously pick up the tab for a stranger in a restaurant -- someone did that for us once and it totally rocked! But the one rule Lelly stipulated was that we weren't supposed to spend any money on our gifts. So, I went back to the only real gift I ever give strangers .... the one I *should* give more often .... the one we should ALL give more often.
Good ole' fashioned blood donation.
I've been a pretty vocal proponent of blood donations on this site in the past, especially when Kendrie was on leukemia treatment and we were on the RECEIVING end of the donations.
Less than an hour of your time, you can potentially help save up to three lives, and, best of all, cookies and juice afterwards. Seriously people, its a win-win!!
If you'd like to know more about it, you can read here and get my personal perspective on the good it does all of us.
If you'd like to know more about the time I totally and completely lost my shit over the future (or lack thereof) of humanity, you can read here and see why I should perhaps consider tranquilizers for myself.
