Today's blood drive was a HUGE success!
I would like to personally thank the Naples Community Hospital Blood Center and Bloodmobile, the Downtown Naples Association, the donors from Merrill Lynch on 5th Avenue South, my fabulous friends who responded to my pleas and all the wonderful agents and staff here at Coldwell Banker Previews office that gave the gift of life today. We had a very successful drive which resulted in enough blood donated today to potentially save 72 lives!
~It is good, when at the end of the day, a person can look at themselves in the mirror and know that they made a difference in the world by taking the time to donate blood. A simple and safe procedure that only 3% of the 68% of qualified donors actually participate. My heart is overflowing with gratitude to those who took the time out of their busy schedules. Giving back to the community we serve is more than just good business...The quality of life in Naples depends on the generous support of those who live and work here. Donating blood takes less than 30 minutes and doesn't cost anything more than your time. Thank you so much!
