Are you a blood donor? LifeShare Blood Center in Texarkana is always out in the community looking for donations. There are a lot of places through the end of the month where you can donate and give the gift of life.

 Why should you donate blood? According to LifeShare:
 Every two seconds, someone somewhere needs blood. One of every seven people who enter the hospital will need blood. That person may be you, your loved one, friend or co-worker. With all the wonderful advances in modern medicine, there still is no substitute for human blood. The blood that helps patients comes only from caring people who volunteer to help others by donating their life-saving blood.
