I don’t know about you but I’ve officially lost count of the days! Today is Friday but what is a weekend when you can’t do anything fun?! I’m trying not to worry about the plight of our world, but instead, focus on things I can control. I hope you are able to do the same.
Want to donate plasma?
The Red Cross is looking for plasma donors with a confirmed COVID-19 diagnosis as well as those who don’t but think they were infected. If you are one of the few who received a positive COVID-19 test result, please consider donating blood to help those coronavirus patients with life-threatening symptoms. As always, your blood could save a life! And, if you are pretty sure you had COVID-19 but weren’t able to get tested, the Red Cross still wants to hear from you. Once they have an antibody test in place, you’ll already be on their donor list. https://www.redcrossblood.org/donate-blood/dlp/plasma-donations-from-recovered-covid-19-patients.html
Prepare to be gaslit
The world as we know it suddenly stopped last month! It just stopped… and if we’re not paying attention, we will revert to our usual ways as COVID-19 recedes. We will be marketed to as we have never before experienced. Rather than jumping back into our normal, comfortable routines, take a pause and consider how this reset can allow you to change your behaviors. Break old habits. Don’t forget what is most important to you, today, while we all sit and wait for the curve to flatten.https://forge.medium.com/prepare-for-the-ultimate-gaslighting-6a8ce3f0a0e0
Please don’t go shopping for just one or two items!
Battle Creek Cellars is donating $1 for every bottle purchased to the Oregon Food Bank. We couldn’t be more proud of them and their efforts! If you are able, please consider buying their wines! You can feel good with every sip. If you live in Portland, they offer curbside pickup and local delivery. And if you don’t, you can order from their online store. https://battlecreekcellars.com
