Today I got a chance to broadcast at the Dunkin Donuts Make a Difference campaign at the Holiday Inn in Concord.

It is always important to give blood but it is even more critical now as they have just issued an emergency call for donors to address a significant blood shortage in New England.

After chatting with representatives from the American Red Cross, Dunkin' Donuts and WMUR I decided that I would roll up my sleeves and give the gift of life.

And if I, the biggest wimp in all of New England, can do it so can you! Make an appointment at one of these upcoming American Red Cross Blood drives and start 2017 off on a selfless and noble foot.
