What a special photo-I just donated blood last week but would have never thought to use this most wonderful gift in a picture. It truly IS the gift of life for such a small cost--just an hour or so of time. Congratulations!

Thank you Angela! The nurse first told me that I absolutely could NOT take pictures during my donation; then she changed her mind!

Indeed, a special gift of sharing! Well done, Melinda, on both counts! Excellent capture in detail, congrats on your POTD win!

Very unusual shot with clear details and with very good message! I did a few months ago and got Oleo and Coke...! Congratulations, Melinda!

Thanks Kumiko! Years ago, they used to give us sandwiches...those days are gone.
