Donate Blood, Save a Life

(Souvenir from hospital to me)

I didn’t plan to write today until and unless I knew that it’s “Zhabdrung Kuchoe” in Bhutan. I log in to the Facebook to see if there is some new post of our Blogyul Blogging of Bhutan. Though I can’t write and contribute from my side, I never miss to read that were posted by our bloggers.

The messages pop up in my chat box from my friend’s wife Mrs. Phub Zam , Thimphu. We exchanged few messages, and came to know that it’s holiday in Bhutan. The moment she said it is very auspicious day in Bhutan, I realized that I did something good today in my life. I didn’t plan, didn’t intent to write in my blog….but I find myself, thinking of writing something.

This is my first time donating blood in Thailand and 5th time in total, in my life. I love donating blood to hospital and people who all need. I remember that I started donating blood when I was in 9th grade in Trashi Yangtse MSS. I knew how much it value in life of others if we can do this. “Give Blood, Save Life”. That is not difficult; everyone has potential to do it. Therefore, I decided to donate blood, I went with my Thai friend to fill up the form and after completing the formalities, the staff who work there asked me, where I’m from? “Bhutan”….Ow! King Jigme right??. I was happy that they know my ideal, my father and my source of inspiration.

I sat on the big bus where there is lots of staff working on it. I pray for a while before they inject me, “This blood is donated to help someone who is desperately in need, and let him/ her recover from sickness and benefit out of it”. But after knowing, today is “Zhabdrunkg Kuchoe” I felt very happy, extremely happy that I have done something good in my life. I did all this out of my knowledge but happen to be good. “God never let me down!!!”.
