The holidays are a happy, wonderful time of the year for most families.  But, when the unexpected happens and you have a medical emergency it can turn your life upside down.

If you or a loved one needs surgery, blood, of course, is also needed.  And the hospital supply is only as plentiful as Michigan Blood is able to provide.  Michigan Blood is THE supplier to all local hospitals and most all on the west side of the state.

The holidays can be tough times for MI Blood since people are preoccupied with preparations and don't, or aren't able to donate.  But the supply need doesn't take a holiday.

So, TODAY, November 21st, is a prime day to donate blood.  And, MI Blood has sweetened the pot, so to speak, by offering pie!  Yep, a free pie for all those who attempt to donate.

You don't need an appointment because you can just show up at the Michigan Blood Center, on Fuller, NE, between I-196 and Leonard.

They're open today from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m.  It is your prime opportunity to help save a life...and get a free pie.

What a good feeling.
