Don't Just Retweet Blood Donation Requests. Donate!

Dr. Roshan Radhakrishnan at Godyears asserts the importance of donating blood and wonders about the fate of all the blood request retweets in his Twitter timeline:

Does anyone ever come to the aid of those tweets? Do you honestly know anyone who has seen a retweet and taken a break from life to go and donate blood? Because I don't… and that saddens me.

He pleas to others to respond to blood donation requests instead of providing only lip service.

  • Jamie DeVriend

    I’m glad the doctor is still putting effort into social media to convince others to donate. Donating blood is so important, especially now when fewer people are donating. If even one person responds to his tweet and donates, then that is a success.
