Making a Donation
I had the unusual experience of donating blood today. This might be a regular thing for you, but for me it was something completely new. Being so, I was not exactly sure what to expect. In my mind I did have some picture of what would happen, and I wasn't far off, but I wasn't sure how I'd feel afterwards. The poor girl next to me probably wasn't expecting to go into some kind of a convulsion, either, but the staff handled it all really well. The only thing I didn't expect was to feel so dreadfully tired. Even now I'm finding it difficult to concentrate.
Are you a regular blood donor? Do you give to charity or some other worthy cause as a matter of habit? Do you feel it's necessary to give to others, no matter what you give? Write about making donations of any kind in your journal. Why do you make donations? What would happen if no one donated? What would happen if you stopped donating? Investigate the need to donate in your journal.
I hope you enjoy this journal writing prompt. Please leave any comments in the section below.
