Step Up to the Plate
If you knew that you could save a life with a single platelet donation, what would stop you from doing it? Platelet donors at CBC step up for a variety of reasons: a sense of responsibility, a need for a brief bit of relaxation, or even an innate desire to save the world, one person at a time.
But what unites all platelet donors is, when they step up to the plate, they are very literally helping to save a life. Platelets only last for five days, yet every fifteen seconds, someone needs them, and they can only receive them from a volunteer platelet donor. Every fifteen seconds — you’ve been reading this page for that long already.
So let’s do it, folks. It’s time to roll up our sleeves and make a difference. It’s time to step up to the plate.
