The main purpose behind this Daily Axioms blog is to provide a voice to help shed some light on the constantly evolving world of social media.
And although social media is always changing, some things never change.
Like, for instance, the unfortunate fact that there are many people out there in need of blood transfusions.
I bring this up because despite the huge need for donations, only about 3% of Americans give blood.
The reasons for not donating range from a paralyzing fear of needles to just having a hard time actually taking the time to make the appointment.
I myself hadn't give blood since high school, and the only reason I went then was because they came to my school.
Well on Thursday, a few of us here at Axiom decided to roll up our sleeves and go over to the American Red Cross Blood Donation Center to give a few pints.
It was the second time in 9 weeks I had given blood, and the second time we made it more of an office event.
It's much easier to go and donate if you go as a group and can actually be a nice team-building activity, not to mention the fact that 1 pint can save up to 3 lives.
So, in 8 weeks I'm sure Team Axiom will be heading back to donate again, and we encourage you all to give as well to help alleviate this massive need.
