Lesa and Pat MorganBlood donors are obviously attracted to the idea of helping others, but today -- Valentine’s Day -- we want to let you know about a pair of donors who became attracted to each other as well.

“About 10 years ago I was donating, actually at a mobile blood drive at my company’s location,” says Lesa Morgan, a regular donor at our St. Peters (Missouri) Donor Center. “There were donors from some other nearby companies there and I ended sitting down and donating next to a very friendly guy…”

That chance meeting of like-minded, generous volunteer donors was just the beginning. Learn more by watching our interview with Lesa on our YouTube Channel!
