This is far from my usual kind of blog post, but it's something that's very important to me so I hope you'll read through to the end. Just around 3 years ago, I came home from the hospital with a beautiful baby girl, my second daughter Emi.
I'd been home for a week, recovering and getting used to having two little ones, when suddenly in the middle of the night I had a severe post-partum hemorrhage. Over the course of the next 12 or so hours I lost half of my body's blood volume. If it weren’t for the kindness of strangers who had donated blood, I might not be here to watch Emi and big sister Maya grow up. I'm forever grateful.
On July 5th, from 1-6pm, I’m sponsoring an American Red Cross Blood Drive at the Hillsdale Firehouse in Hillsdale, NY. I hope you and any friends and family members who are able will join me in giving blood. I'll also be putting my camera to good use for this worthy cause--one presenting donor will be chosen to receive a FREE individual or family photo session!
CLICK HERE to schedule an appointment. And please spread the word by sharing this blog post or asking friends and family to join us!
If you'd like more information about this blood drive and giveaway, contact me via my website or email or Facebook or Instagram. I look forward to seeing many of you there!!
