Blood Donor Style

“Bottom line is that people need to donate blood often and regularly in order to meet the need for fresh blood.” 
-CNN Correspondent Dr. Sanjay Gupta
Dr. Sanjay Gupta isn’t as loud as Dr.Phil, or as old as Dr. Spock, or as sexy as Dr. Ruth(short can be sexy), or as into displaying gross body organs as Dr. Oz, but there’s just something about his style that makes us sit up straight and listen. He gives us the 101 on the state of blood in the United States and he doesn’t mince words. If you’re down with Gupta, your down with blood donation style.
JBCStyle COO Keith Geller spearheaded an office field trip yesterday. When asked why give blood, he didn’t offer up any of the alarming statistics Dr. Gupta shares; but his response was just as convincing:

Makes me feel good to help.  My dad has always given blood, and now platelets, and I used to go with him as a little boy… was a real bonding and learning experience for me about compassion and doing your part beyond financial charity.”

The ever effervescent Nikki B. followed with a company-wide email we just cannot resist quoting: “Did you know that one pint of blood can save up to three lives…this means that JBCStyle saved 12 lives today woohoo!”
We couldn’t think of anything more stylish than saving lives, Nikki, and indeed a gesture of this magnitude can only go down in our records as the essence of woohoo. To the members of the JBCStyle team who donated yesterday, you are the essence of woohoo style.
