For as long as I can remember, I’ve always wanted to donate blood. The fact that just taking a few minutes of my time, could ultimately save someone’s life, had me keen to register when I finally turned 18.
Unfortunately, my anaemic ass needs every single drop of blood I have, so donating blood is not an option for me.
Seeing as it is Black History Month in the UK, I thought it would be the perfect time to use my platforms, (this blog and Black Travel Creators) to encourage more black people to donate blood.
Before I start, I just want to clear up a few things: 1)I am in no way saying that travelling will help everyone who suffers from depression. 2)I am not a mental health expert, I’m just sharing my own experiences, with the hope that it will help someone get the help that they need. 3) If you are experiencing suicidal thoughts, please seek help now!!!
