On a complete whim yesterday, I donated blood. After leaving Court. (Come on, doesn’t every attorney donate blood when they’re in Court?!)
Every time I’ve donated in the past has been through the American Red Cross. Today was my first NY Blood Center experience. And they pulled out all the stops! There were no plain beige bandaids here. Oh no, I left with my arm all nicely wrapped in purple gauze. You heard that right – purple! Conveniently, I just happened to be wearing a purple shirt too.
Pretty bad ass, if I do say so myself. Nothing like purple ruffles accented by a little purple gauze! Also, take note of my lovely bookshelf in the background. Taking pictures in the office = totally normal.
Not only did I do a good deed, I started in on #25 on my “30 Before 30” list – just have 4 more donations to go to compete it!
