Your DGB for today is to donate blood or, if you’re unable, help someone else do the same.

On Monday, Americans woke up to the horrible news that the worst mass shooting in US history had occurred overnight in Las Vegas, NV. The death toll of that shooting now stands at 58, and the injured at 527. As early as two am, folks started lining up at blood donation centers in LV to do their part for the injured at overwhelmed area hospitals.

If you live in Las Vegas, the need is obvious and immediate. But tragedy, whether it be a senseless act of violence or a natural disaster, can strike any community at any time, and blood is always a precious commodity. To find out where to donate in your area, go here and enter your city and state. If you can’t donate for some reason, consider giving someone who can a ride or making a monetary donation to your local blood bank.

When things like this happen, it is easy to feel like there’s nothing we can do. But there ARE ways we can help. A donation today might save a life tomorrow.
