Most of us feel pretty good about ourselves after we work up the courage to donate just one pint of blood, but a Colorado man has donated 65 GALLONS of blood since 1984!
Talk about being generous!
On Tuesday, Bill Burnham was recognized at the Belle Bonfils Blood Center for his years of service and generosity to others in his Aurora, Colorado community.
Just how many "others"? Oh, only about 1,500!
That's right! Bill's 27 years of donations have saved the lives of 1,500 people.
The Bonfils Blood Center says they need 3,000 donors every week to meet the demands of the community and Bill admits he "probably would" donate it all if he could.
So what is this guy's motivation for every donation?
“I just feel good inside that I gave a pint of blood and just, feel great," Burnham said.
We're truly impressed by this man's giving spirit and it makes us happy to know that he exists!
Thank you, Bill! You are an inspiration for all of us to get off of our butts and give a little bit back to our community.
