There’s a blood shortage in the NYC area right now, due to blood drive cancellations during this weekend’s storm.

Whether or not you’re in NY/NJ, why not find a drive or set up an appointment? Now’s as good a time as any to donate — there’s always a need for blood.

Plus, if you click the date idea above, you can post it as a HowHookup date and find someone to go with. And since you’ve gotta keep those iron levels up, why not get a burger together before or after? (If you’re in NYC, I recommend The Piggie at DBGB, the Bash Style burger at Burger & Barrel, or the chargrilled burger at The Spotted Pig, shown.)
