Although this picture is of a blood bank elsewhere, we thought you'd like to know...that thePLATELETS you donated on December 3, 2010were sent to the following hospital(s):
New York University Hospitals Center
Kings County Hospital Center
On behalf of the cancer patient, accident victim or other person with a blood clotting problem whom you may have helped, THANK YOU.
AND PLEASE CONSIDER COMING OUT TO THE BROOKLYN BLOOD CENTER WITH YOUR FRIEND GIL ONE OF THESE DAYS.
TOGETHER YOU CAN TURN IT INTO SOMETHING FUN. PERHAPS A ROUND ROBIN READING OF A BOOK YOU BOTH LIKE. EVEN JUST KICKING IT WITH THE LOVELY EMPLOYEES THERE MAKES IT WORTHWHILE.
Or you can just lay there and pretend you've been hospitalized. 100 or so minutes later you can get up and leave as if nothing happened. That's called elevating your consciousness through forced, self-imposed appreciation for the simple things in life. Like health.
