Why am I a blood donor?


Berit is a high school student in Byron, MN who became a blood donor “because it is an easy way to give back to the community and people, and anyone can do it as long as you are willing to put the time into it.”

Berit initially created this video for a class, and she explains that
the teacher encouraged students to choose a subject that was near and dear to their hearts.

“We had to choose something that we had a strong feeling about and wanted other people to know about,” explains Berit. “I am hoping that each time people see it, they will become more comfortable and more willing to save lives by donating blood. Once you give blood, you feel great about it and you want to keep doing it.”

    God bless you! I had cancer at 26 years old and went through chemo and a stem cell transplant and received COUNTLESS blood transfusions…without them I wouldn’t be alive so I say THANK YOU for all you do. IT is very important to donate and it is important for us receivers to say THANKS to all fo those that do! Keep up the great work.
