Episode 19-5 Blood


Our musical theme this week may sound morbid, but we swear we’re coming from a good place! The theme is all things blood related! Characters who drink blood, fighting games that draw blood, and hospitals that need blood. That means everything from smooth, sexy jams, to heavy hitting 16-bit classics, to old-school hip-hop!

Why Donate Blood?

A blood donation truly is a “gift of life” that a healthy individual can give to others in their community who are sick or injured. In one hour’s time, a person can donate one unit of blood that can be separated into four individual components that could help save multiple lives.
