Donate Blood!

by

Who needs a great excuse to eat sweets AND a big meal on the same day!?

I sure do!

As a pro pilot, we can donate blood as long as we’re not flying within 72 hours. For the past decade, donating has been hard to squeeze in due to this requirement.

Having some COVID-19 prompted downtime from the flight deck, I decided to head into my local Vitalant blood donation center to bring some Mrs. Nevada American bling and awareness to the never-ending need for donor blood nationwide.​​​

Sadly, only 5% of eligible donors donate blood nationwide. And every 2 seconds, someone in the U.S. needs donor blood!

So enjoy some sweets courtesy of Vitalant right after you complete your donation and a big meal out at your local restaurant ​​with your favorite person that evening. Don’t forget to drink plenty of water before and during your donation….a big thanks to @idrinkbeverages for keeping me hydrated during my donation!
