Mustard Seed Budget

give bloodI always knew that giving blood was good — for others. Frankly, I’m surprised to learn of the health benefits of giving a pint of your 10-11 pints once every two months or so:

  • It reduces risk for heart disease by keep iron levels in check.
  • It lowers cancer risk (again, the iron content).
  • It burns 650 Kcal.
  • You get a free check-up!
  • Do-gooder feeling does a body good.

In eight weeks, your red blood cell count is automatically replenished! Why dont’ more people give?

The truth about giving blood also applies to donating, whether to a charitable organization or a church. Whether you want to save abandoned dogs or abandoned souls (my choice!), giving is good for you.
