Blood Drive part 2

Talk about a busy day. I deleted a past entry and combined some entries, keeping them backdated, so that I don't spam anyones friends list. Sorry if I'm posting a lot, I just wanna get these details down in my journal so I don't forget them.

Today the details of the blood drive at my work continued to pour in via email. I'm informed that if I donate, I'm eligible for the following:

1) All-Star Blood Donor t-shirts (all donors will receive a t-shirt)!
2) Lots of refreshments (all donors will receive refreshments)!
3) A chance to win four 2005 season passes to a theme park of your choice (Hershey Park, Kings Dominion, or Six Flags America) (all donors can register to win)!
4) A chance to win a cruise (all donors can register to win)!

I asked them to clarify for me if I had to -donate- in order to be eligible.. and I got a yes to that. I asked what I should do if I can't donate, and I got a fluffy response assuring me that many people can't donate either for temporary or perm. reasons, and that I should try to get other people to donate.

If there's a chance to win a prize and you're being unfairly disqualified for essentially being gay, and the blood drive is in any way being funded by government funds (i.e. your taxes, then sue for discrimination. You got rights.

Oh wait, this is America...guess you don't have any rights after all.

Ooooo! Even better, say that because you can't donate due to your meds, you're being discriminated against because you're handicapped. The media would eat it up. :)

Dear lord...that reminds me of an incident in high school where I got punished because a rock I threw hit someone, but not because I threw it at them in the first place.

I think you should point out that it's their own set of precautions that prevent you from donating, and that you should at least get something for _wanting_ to donate.
