Jesseica Elliott, of LaCenter Washington, recently donated blood with the American Red Cross and encourages others to do the same. What motivated her? Read on.
“I love helping people. Knowing how crucial my blood type is in emergency settings, my heart just guided me right up to that big red and white bus.
In a historical time of division and visceral discourse, your bright red cross is a symbol that rebounds my dwindling hope in humanity.
I would have donated sooner in life. I feel guilty I had not. A fear of needles kept me away but life knocked me down enough to learn a little pain now can produce a multitude of blessings later.”Jesseica Elliott, blood donor
She’s already signed up to make her next donation.
Thank you Jesseica! You are a blessing to us.
