You don't always need to have a story behind why you started to donate blood. Sometimes you just know it's the right thing to do. For one dedicated Unyts blood donor, this is exactly the case. Andrea Johnson donates regularly with Unyts because she knows it's important.
"I donate because it's important. I donate because there's so much bad in the world that I'd like to contribute to something good," she explained. "I donate because it's helping human, but mostly, I donate because I can."
Andrea is a regular platelets donor at our Eastern Hills Mall Community Blood Donation Center and she enjoys it the most because it's given her time to get to know the Unyts staff.
"With donating platelets I've had enough time to form relationships with some of the wonderful Unyts employees." She's pictured above with Colleen, our RN Supervisor in the Blood Donor Services department.
While she's never had the need to receive blood, she knows how important it is to give and encourages everyone to do so.
"It's important for people to know that at some point they may need to receive blood for themselves. Please donate if you can. Pay it forward."
