Today, I donated platelets at the New York Blood Center location at Lawrence Street, Brooklyn. Its a short block from the Lawrence Street stop of the R train. The location could not be easier to get to for most Brooklynites.
I've done this a few times now, and its easy as pie. I sign up online, then show up on a Saturday, or on the way home from work, and 90 minutes later, I''m outta there. Some of the staff recognize me now. And I love the cookies they give you.
If you want to know how the actual process works, don't ask me. Watch this video, from a North Carolina Red Cross center.
Sign up today, they really need platelets!
