In September of 2009, my best friend organized our first Girl Scout blood drive. I remember donating and feeling awesome afterwards knowing I helped save lives. Unfortunately, in March of 2010, my best friend died in a car accident. Since her death, I have organized two blood drives in her honor and our girl scout troops intend to hold one every year. Donating is awesome, but organizing a blood drive is amazing.
