Giving the gift of life

The San Diego Blood Bank comes to ViaSat (where I work) 2x/year, and I typically give blood during those times. 2 years ago I learned how giving blood can affect physical performance while working since really it is anti-doping (TdF rides - take note). But, other than the immediate physical limitations, I feel great afterwards. I almost feel a bit cleansed. Maybe it's a mental thing, maybe it's physical, maybe it's both. But regardless, I feel great afterwards!

I also learned of some partnerships that the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society has developed. These partnerships allow LLS to get a certain % of the total cost of a purchase, with NO cost to the consumer. So, if you purchase anything on amazon.com or book travel on expedia.com, use the following links!
