If you are able to donate blood, but not so much ready and willing, this story might inspire you.
At 87-years-old Morton Sadinsky has donated nearly 30 gallons of blood since 1972.
He donated his first pint in the 1950’s but didn’t start keeping track until he first donated with the Red Cross over four decades ago.
“It’s one of the easiest things in life that you could do,” Sadinsky said. “If I’d like to make a point today for other people, it’s to let them know that this is very easy to do. It is painless. You have your blood back in two days, so you’re not going to be bloodless for very long.”
When Sadinksy was at the 21 gallon mark, he helped save 519 lives, and that number is only increasing.
