What I found out next not only changed my life, but the lives of others. It turns out I have A- blood, which only 6% of the world has.
Even though I was struggling through the height of Covid, I’m a big believer in being kind. My bar was closed, I was worried for my staff, the musicians, and myself. The election was in full force, and people were at each other’s throats. I just wanted to do something nice.
So, I decided to donate platelets due to my blood type. For the last eleven months, I’ve been driving an hour every month, donating my blood and time. They kept track of my antibodies, which hadn’t changed since last July.
I don’t do it for the money or the glory. It’s just the right thing to do.
