Can you help a bitch please? I ask this because lots of bitches need help.
Before MWDAS got too big for its britches on Facebook I attempted to direct attention to specific people who needed a boost. I called it “Help a Bitch Sunday.”
I don’t know about you, but there are times that I read a story about a person or a family that makes me feel sad and lucky at the same time. When l feel like the universe is using me for a toilet I try to remember that much better people than me have much worse shit going down. It shuts me up in a hot second.
The bitch I want to help today is you. You might not need the help on this particular Sunday of bitch helping, but I guarantee that you or someone you love or someone they love will need the help I’m talking about. BLOOD.
[America’s Blood Centers Home Page](http://www.americasblood.org/go.cfm?do=page.view&pid=12). I am asking you to read this home page. I’m begging. If you have the attention span of a toddler then just PLEASE read numbers 1-10 of the 56 facts. Someone needs blood every two seconds. EVERY TWO SECONDS. As you read those last three capitalized words someone needed blood. BOOM! There is goes again! You just read that sentence and this time that person is someone you love.
Here comes the bitch in me. I understand if you cannot donate blood. I’ll say it again. I understand if you cannot donate blood. For years, I could be counted among the people who could not, so I found other ways to help a bitch. I don’t want to hear about it if you can’t. I’m not judging you or encouraging you to beat yourself down because you can’t. Get over it. Forward on this information to a friend or family member and ask them to do it for you. Tell them you need them to donate a pint of their healthy and delicious blood. Offer to drive them, watch their kids while they donate. That’s helping a bitch, fo sho.
What I am saying is that if you CAN donate blood then you SHOULD donate blood. If you can you should. If you can you should. If you can you should. If you can you should. In the time it took me to type that sentence at least 3 people needed blood. Just sayin’.
[America’s Blood Centers Claire’s mom doesn’t get dead giving birth to her ](http://www.americasblood.org/go.cfm?do=Page.View&pid=109). Claire Larson has a mother today because 250 people gave blood. 250? Yep. Laurie Larson required 250 units of blood to save her life on the very day her daughter Claire came into the world. This mother and daughter almost didn’t meet. She is a sister mom. She is one of us today because 250 people gave blood. THIS IS NOT JUST A STORY. THIS IS A PERSON. I want you to feel it.
If you cannot give blood that’s a huge bummer but that doesn’t mean that you wasted time reading this. Please share the information.

If you don’t share this with someone today then you suck. My opinion.
