Not only is this a really cool Pete Townshend song (off the White City album) , it’s also a really good thing to do.
Today, after I take my eldest son to basketball practice, I will be donating at a local center holding a blood drive called “Types For Tots.” All the blood collected at this drive will go specifically for children in need.
(this is not me, btw. It’s not even my stunt double.)
Overall, I think I have donated something like 3 gallons in my career as a blood donater. It’s really simple and makes you feel good for doing something nice. Oh, just as a side note, when the nurses tell you to drink plenty of fluids – they don’t mean beer.
For me, it’s probably going to be coffee….and lots of it.
