Blood Donor Day

Blood donation is one of the best things you can do for your fellows.  It’s easy, in Korea you get a little gift, and you save the life of someone anonymously.  I can think of few better things a person could do.

I have had challenges giving blood in Korea trying to translate the questions properly but people have always been willing to help.  I haven’t given blood this year yet because I haven’t seen a blood bus at my university.  maybe this is a good thing.  At my previous university, the city was relatively flat (well, relatively) while I now work atop a big, steep hill.  Even walking down this hill requires some balance and effort and you shouldn’t exert yourself after giving blood.

I hope the kids in this picture from the Chosun Ilbo are going to give blood, rather than have just given blood.
