Be The Match!

It's easy - go to Be The Match, look over the health guidelines (and unlike giving blood here in the US, being foreign DOESN'T disclude you!), if you qualify, fill out the online forms, order a kit, swab your cheek, send it back and voila, you're on the Bone Marrow donor registry and may be able to help someone fighting blood disease!

Happy Weekend everyone!

oh that is awesome. i can't even donate blood in the US!

I can't donate blood here either (mad cow disease anyone?), but the bone marrow people seem to be way more sensible and less exclusionary. The tests you get if you become a match though are far more extensive!

You are definitely making us, encouraging us to see ther\ better sides of ourselves. For this i am truly grateful. I hope your Thanksgiving day is special. does Hawaii do anything different and unique?

I think if you're Hawaiian the Thanksgiving meal is somewhat oriental in style, otherwise I have seen giant blow up turkey's on peoples houses, so much the same. Not sure what i'm doing, but I want to make sure a swim is in the mix somewhere!
