The Meeting This Week
President Ted welcomed everyone, introduced guests, and made general announcements. He
was his usual charming self. Ted asked everyone to bring any type of extra shoes on November
18th for Shoes2Share’s drive to provide shoes for Haiti and needy people in other countries.
Our Speaker – Al Whitney, Blood Platelet Donor
Al Whitney is shown giving
blood platelets at the Blood
Bank’s Christiana Center
before he came to the Rotary
meeting to speak. Al’s hobby
is to bring his message about
the need for blood to all 50
states and to leave some of
his own behind at each stop.
Delaware was state number
Al Whitney’s personal quest is to give a blood platelet donation in all 50 states. He gave two units
of platelets at Blood Bank of Delmarva on Thursday and then came to the Christiana Rotary Club
to tell of his experiences bringing his overall total to 668.
Since he began in August 2007, Delaware is the 40th state in which he donated as part of his
cross-country quest to raise awareness for platelet and whole blood donation.
Whitney donated his first pint of blood in 1965 and has donated more than five gallons of whole
blood as well as the platelet donations over the years. Platelets, which have a shelf life of five
days, are needed for cancer and leukemia patients who undergo chemotherapy and radiation
A platelet donation, called plateletpheresis, provides about 10 times more platelets than a regular
blood donation. For more information, go to: www.delmarvablood.org.
