Save someone's life!

Number 73 on my list is one that I have wanted to do for years and just have never done. "Get put on the bone marrow registry. My friend Stacy posted the following on Facebook and I jumped right on it!

You can join for free right now to become a potential bone marrow donor to save someone's life. This normally costs $50 to $100 to join the registry but with this code you can join for
free. add this promo code to register for free PIF070109 PLEASE copy and paste this into your facebook profile and help save someones life

Now, I just need to wait 7 to 10 days to get my kit in the mail. It appears that all I do is swab the inside of my cheek with five q-tips and send them back. I think it would be so wonderful if I was a match to someone in need. Please, if you are not on the registry take the 10 minutes to go to the website, answer a few questions (similar to the ones asked when giving blood) and possibly save someone's child!

I never realized they would charge you to join the registry, I will go to the website now, and register. Thanks for sharing.
