Day Seven — Jump

Jump!

You’d imagine that’s what would happen if a large needle was making its way towards your precious vein.

Not me, not anymore.

This was my fourth time donating blood. My first time in over a year. I was afraid to donate since I almost fainted at my last donation…( first time in my life that I’ve been close to fainting I may add)

I love donating blood. That’s a strange statement, yet it’s amazing to think that 470ml of your blood is going towards saving someone’s life. Think about what you would do if you knew someone who was sick and needed a transfusion, what wouldn’t you do to help them?

It’s a selfless, simple act that could drastically change a persons quality of life.

I am hoping to donate up my donations to 10 by the end of 2013!

Go on, what are you waiting for, make the jump. Register as a blood donor!

*side note*
It is surreal listening to an audio book of The Walking Dead whilst you’re being drained… 😀

Sand in My Pockets – Raglans

The reason I love this video so much is that it captures the very essence of Raglans. Four talented lads having fun and playing music. My friend Finn filmed it, and when I asked him how did the video shoot go he said. “Alls I did was follow the lads around for a day.” I knew instantly the final product would be lovely. “Sand in My Pockets” is one of my favourite songs, it has an almost barbershop quartet feeling to it, but as always displays Raglans’ trademark melodies & harmonies. Everything about this song and video screams happiness, it’s a sunny day having fun with your friends and then heading to a gig. Makes me even more excited to be following them around.

Well played Raglans, well played.
