I saved a life!

If you’ve ever donated blood, you may have a vague notion that you could be helping your community, but rarely does the experience offer a concrete example of the impact you could be making on real individuals.

But that’s exactly what happened for two Dayton Christian High School students this month.  Both Sam Orme, a sophomore, and Emma Rohrer, a junior, were contacted by the Community Blood Center to let them know that the blood they donated during our National Junior Honor Society blood drive on March 1 was used to save a life.  

“It was really cool that such a seemingly small act – something that really didn’t take very much of my time – could make such a big difference in another person’s life,” said Rohrer.

“When I donated blood, I thought maybe I could help someone, but I din’t expect this,” said Orme.  “It was amazing to hear that I actually helped someone!”

Remember that a small act of service like donating blood can make a huge difference to someone else. Each unit of blood that is donated can be separated into red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets, and could ultimately save three lives!
