You are going out to the Reston Festival anyway, right, and while there you will see the good folks at Nice Mirror, and do the good deed of entering yourself in the bone marrow donor system. On the way out there, please stop on Route 50 in Fairfax at the Kena Shriners to give a pint of blood. We have a blood drive there about once per quarter, it seems, all run by the Red Cross, so stop on by and give the gift of life.

If you have never given blood before, you should know that you don’t leave simply having saved a life. In this case, you leave with a great breakfast, prepared by my friend Chef Don. Free food and hero status – can you think of a better combination? The blood drive will be operating from 9-12 on Saturday.

Learn more about the Shriners and tell them Carl sent you. They are great folks and Chef Don will treat you right.

Give Blood and Save a Life

Giving Blood

Come down to the blood drive on Saturday the 12th at Arlington Centennial Glebe Masonic Lodge at 1 S. George Mason Drive in Arlington. You don’t have to be a Mason to donate, just be 110 pounds or more, over 17 and satisfy a few other simple requirements. Can’t make it to this blood drive? Check out the Arlington Red Cross’s site to find one near you.

There is no substitute for red blood cells. Your time – five to ten minutes in the chair – can be the difference in someone’s life.
