Ed Draves lives the mission of Unyts. He is a platelet donor; living kidney donor; speaker and advocate of organ and blood donation for the Free and Accepted Masons of the State of New York.
Ed donates platelets with Unyts at the Southgate Neighborhood Blood Donation Center. He knows that donation is necessary, and it doesn’t cost him anything to help a cancer or burn victim stay alive. Knowing others are aided by his actions is a great incentive to give. Everyone should give back; more people need to donate.
Ed says that while he is terrified of needles, blood donation is simple because the staff at Southgate are pleasant and make it easy. When he goes there to donate it is like visiting friends and they go out of their way for the donors.
