Have you or your loved ones
or friends ever faced the neces
sity of a blood transfusion? If
not, you can consider yourself
very fortunate because the odds
are that at one time or another
you or some member of your
family will drastically need
whole blood or blood derivatives
as a result of an accident or ill
ness!. Will this blood be on hand
when you need it? Let's sup
pose for a moment that this
needed blood would be returned
to you only in the same amount
that you had contributed to the
American Red Cross blood pro
gram. The sad fact is that most
of you would hot be alive today
because only a small percentage
of our population ontribute to
this life-giving effort. Other
unfortunate facts borne out by
statistics show that most of the
blood used has come from per
sons who have contributed many
times and that new donors are a
small minority. ' These same per
sons who have been regular don
ors for so long cannot continue
forever to carr ythe load , for
those who never contribute or
take part in this program. If
you are one of those persons
who have been depending on
someone else to furnish blood,
remember this. The persons on
whom you are depending could
decide that they had done
enough and so no longer donate.
Where would this leave you?
We must have an adequate sup
ply of blood on hand at all
times. We can only do this with
the cooperation of all of you.
If you have never become a
blood donor won't you stand up
this ; time; and. be counted with
those who realize the vtal im
'portance') of ounuig ' In the
b.lood program. -The procedure
of, .giving blood is Simple, easy,
almost painless end' takes but a
few, minutes. -The bloodmobile
will be here in ' this county at
the , First Methodist Church in'
Hertford on September 30, Mon-.
day., ; The unit will begin re
ceiving donors at 12 o'clock
noon and remain open until !B'
'P. M. : r;
Come and bring a friend. Our
quota is 100 pints but we ewpeot
to go well beyond that with your
help. Refreshments will be
served. Proudly wear your
blood donor pin. We'll see yoli
