Don’t Be Boastful!
That was one of the many things my parents drilled into us.
Boastful: statement in which you express too much pride in yourself or in something you have, have done, or are connected to in some way
I Declare This Blog Guilt-Free
I have donated blood, with some regularity since first year university. This week when I donated it was my 100th donation. For some reason, I do feel proud, even boastful. I am fortunate to be in good health and to be able to donate blood. Donors are not aware of exactly where the blood is needed but you trust you may be helping someone somewhere. The Canadian statistics about blood donations are a bit surprising-only 3.5 % of eligible Canadians routinely donate blood. There are a number of reasons why people aren’t able to donate. If you are lucky to live a life where you or your loved ones aren’t in need of blood or blood products, it’s not top of mind. That is possibly the best reason to donate blood-because you don’t need it and someone else does.
