I got an email yesterday from my longtime friend, Jen Bowman, P.R. and Marketing Director for the Rock River Valley Blood Center. Jen got right to the point in that email by saying: "We need blood badly!! Do you have any time for me tomorrow morning?"

Given how much I admire Jen, and more importantly, how much I appreciate the ongoing efforts of the Rock River Valley Blood Center, I replied immediately, and invited her in this morning.

Jen's not kidding. The RRVBC really does need some immediate help:
