The ultimate Secret Santa idea this Christmas


Received my blood donor card today after my first donation a few weeks ago.
Found out that I'm O+ which confirms how common I suspected I was!
Apparently it is the most common blood group with 37% of people having this group. Being common has its advantages. My blood donations can potentially help 83% of the population. How cool is that?! Although you can only donate 3 times per year and only after a 16 week gap between donations, it won't stop me making an appointment in advance for the next donation online.
I never realised what a positive effect this experience would have on me and if you want to get close again to the true spirit of Christmas, do consider giving blood.
It really is about giving the gift of life to someone you will never meet. The ultimate Secret Santa present. :-)
