National Blood Supply Shortage

Another Grueling Semester Bites the Dust

You may have noticed there have been no new posts lately? That’s because I just finished up a hard class in school called “Interactive Graphic Design.” My actual major is web media and this is one of those required classes I grit my teeth through. ESPECIALLY when they said, “we want the designs handmade.” I’m like, “what?!!!” (I draw like a kindergartner on a good day.)

American Red Cross

Recently, I gave up my blood to a Red Cross blood drive held by my dear and close friends, Penny and Todd. Their 17-year-old son Elijah has undergone extensive chemotherapy for over a year. He has severe leukemia and regularly needs blood. This was their way of giving back to the community. Attending that event a few weeks ago inspired me to pick the American Red Cross for my Public Service Announcement (PSA) poster assignment (the final major assignment for this class).

Here are a couple more posters!

You might recognize this next one.

National Crisis

It turns out our national blood supply is at a 10-year low and undersupplied in several areas of our country. So give if at all possible! It’s easy to organize a drive. You can find a place to donate blood near you OR find out how to host your own drive by visiting

    Some years ago, I made a New Year’s resolution to give blood every eight weeks. It is a small thing that I can do that makes a big difference in someone else’s life. I’ve been continuing that resolution for years now and have started volunteering at Red Cross Blood drives in my area. I love your posters. They are beautiful. Great job!

      Oh wow! That is so generous of you. Bless your very big heart. It is not really that small of a sacrifice but how lovely you are about it all. Thank you, thank you!
