National Marrow Donor Program

So I just did something that scares the shit out of me. But it's something that I really needed to do. I signed up to be a Bone Marrow Donor.

I mean, come on, if one of my daughters needed a marrow donor and I wasn't already registered, I'd feel like such a tool. Not to mention that I could actually help someone and it wouldn't really cost me anything but a couple days mild discomfort. And I birthed two babies in under eight hours (combined, but not at the same time, of course), so I can handle a wee bit of ache in my back, thank you very much.

So yeah. Go sign up. They're having a marrow drive where you can get the collection fee waived if you sign up before May 21. Just follow this link. You'll be glad you did. Even if they poke holes in your back and suck out your marrow. Just think of the awesome karmic juju you'll get from that little ditty!

ETA: Inspired by Beth, the rocking mama behind Small Change. If you sign up, go tell her you did so. I want her to see what a brilliant impact she's having on the world. Also, my goal is to get 20 people signed up (a personal goal, I won't get a pony or anything), so let me know if you go for it!
