Do You Want to Make a Difference in the World?

The Bone Marrow Donor CenterBeing charitable feeds your soul.  You can donate money or wear a special bracelet in hopes that you are making a difference or helping another, but the truth is, do you really know where your money goes?  What if you could actually save somebody’s life, would you do it?

Well, you can.  And here’s how:  Enter your contact information at The Bone Marrow Donor Center and they will send you an envelope with swabs in it to swipe the inside of your cheek with and mail back to them. One day, you might be a genetic match for someone with leukemia.  If you are lucky enough to be able to help a person in dire need, you will spend a day in outpatient surgery donating bone marrow which is extracted through a needle.  It’s not a walk in the park, but it’s not a horrible experience either.   The end result is that there is no better feeling than truly helping another. Check it out today.
