All donors have a reason for giving. Perhaps your parents were blood donors and inspired you to carry on their tradition, maybe you knew someone in need and decided to make a life-saving donation, or maybe someone helped you when you needed blood. In honor of National Volunteer Blood Donor month we invite you to share your stories of why you give blood.

When web content specialist Jennifer Ciattei was 18 years old, her father told her that he was proud that she’d reached the age when she could give blood. Years later, he was suffering from lung cancer and in need of blood himself. Upon entering his hospital room, she noticed bags of blood, each with a sticker that said “volunteer donor.” Because of that blood, her dad survived that event. Every time she gives blood, she thinks of his smiling face and the fact that she might be giving someone the opportunity to spend more days with a loved one.

Comment below with your story.

There used to be a time where your main option for purchasing college textbooks was through the school book store. Now, students have many options, from purchasing books online, buying an e-book format, or even a rental for the semester. Many schools also featured smoking lounges, where teachers would take smoke breaks. What do you remember from back in the day? Maybe it has to do with the school environment, the tools that you used, or maybe even the classes that you took. Share your memories with us on this week’s Hopkins Happenings Throwback Thursday.

Brenda and SeanSince 1970, January has been declared National Volunteer Blood Donor month. January in particular can be a challenging month for donors to give, as the inclement weather can make it difficult to arrive at scheduled appointments. However, the need for blood does not change. According to the American Red Cross, “hospital patients nationwide need about 44,000 blood donations daily for cancer care, surgeries, and the treatment of serious diseases and trauma.”

Nearly 11 million people give blood every year, are you one of them?
