Did you realize that January is "National Blood Donor Month"?  Blood is traditionally in short supply during the winter months due to the holidays, travel schedules, inclement weather and illness. January, in particular, is a difficult month for blood centers to collect blood donations.  The American Red Cross, in conjunction with other blood collection centers, is celebrating National Blood Donor Month 2008 to encourage donors to give or pledge to give blood.


If you're anything like our families, you know someone--or are related to someone, who has required a blood transfusion. Amazingly, every day in our country approximately 39,000 units of blood are required in hospitals and emergency treatment facilities for patients with cancer and other diseases, for organ transplant recipients, and to help save the lives of accident victims.


The Pistol Tingen Team would like to encourage you to mark your calendar right now as a reminder that January is your opportunity to help ensure that blood is available to patients whenever and wherever it is needed--because it's the blood on the shelves that helps save lives. Please help by joining The Pistol Tingen Team in celebrating National Blood Donor Month.  You may contact our community's local American Red Cross Chapter at  www.redcross.org  to learn how and where you can donate.


In the meantime, our interest remains in serving you with any and all of your Greenville NC real estate needs.
