“Dear PoP,

I just go back from donating blood at Children’s hospital. They told me they need to organize blood drives for the 22nd, 23rd and 29th of December. If you can get 15-20 people to agree to donate blood, they can send a blood mobile out to a designated location and do a blood drive.

How about a PoP blood drive. I bet you have a lot of readers who are not leaving town. Might be cool to do in in conjunction with a local restaurant (Pete’s? CommonWealth?) at lunch time. It could also be a book or toy drive for Children’s.”

If I can get 20 people to commit I’ll happily coordinate. If you’d like to donat please mention which day (22, 23, or 29) works for you and where you’d like to have it set up.
