How OC Moms Can Help with The Tragedy in Boston

Nurse taking blood sample  from patient in clinic

The first thing that came to mind when hearing about the tragedy in Boston, was if my sister was safe. Since she lives and works in the city, I felt my heart stop when I got a text message from a friend telling me about the event. I was so grateful that she was safe, but heartbroken that so many we hurt, injured and had lost their lives.

Immediately I wanted to find a way that I could help. Being that we live so far away, and there is not a lot that many of us can do to help – there is one way that we can all help. We can all take the time to give blood to the American Red Cross. Having a large amount of blood on hand is important, not just for this tragedy, but also in the event of a natural disaster. With that being said, we have complied a list of local blood drives happening in Orange County this week for everyone to help.
