The American Red Cross calls on eligible donors with all blood types to help maintain a sufficient blood supply this summer

The American Red Cross calls on eligible donors with all blood types to help maintain a sufficient blood supply this summer

WILMINGTON, NC July 16, 2014 — The American Red Cross encourages all eligible blood donors to make an appointment to donate blood soon to help prevent a shortage. During the summer months, on average, about two fewer donors give blood at each Red Cross blood drive than what is needed to meet the needs of patients. Vacations and summer activities are among the reasons regular donors may not find the time to give. But, patients don’t get a vacation from needing blood – the need is constant. As a national network, the Red Cross has a unique responsibility to help ensure blood is available for patients whenever and wherever it is needed. By donating blood or platelets through the Red […]

A Pirate’s Exile: Bonnaroovian Adventures

San Pedro, CA, July 13th, 2014-I left North Carolina on a Greyhound from Wilmington headed towards Roanoke, VA. It was a 14 hour ride but it was overnight and really not that bad, to be honest.

I was on my way to what would be one of the coolest things I’ve ever experienced. Bonnaroo is a 4 day music and art festival in Manchester, TN. I’d never been to a festival before and was a little anxious to get started. I was also a little bit nervous. I […]
