On June 2, we’re doing an outreach activity here at Metropolitan that I’m soooooooo excited about.  We’re hosting a blood and bone marrow drive!  (Sign up here) Don’t you DARE stop reading!  I know you want to, because you’re most likely black, and black people don’t generally donate blood.  It’s the truth.  The stats are horrible or somewhat less horrible, depending on whom you believe.  Only about 5 percent of the general population donates blood, and of that number, only 10 percent are African American – says the Gulf Coast Regional Blood Center1.  Blood Centers of the Pacific reports that only 3 percent of their African American population donates blood2.
