Dear Red Cross,

I wanted to send something along to make someone’s life easier, but I don’t really have a lot to send along. In fact, I wish I was on the receiving end of the ease for once if you know what I mean (you probably don’t)!

A long time ago, I read an article, about how after hurricane Andrew blew through, the Red Cross put out a call for donations of items, and was inundated with tweezers and hammers and such, when what they really needed was cold hard cash! Well, it would be pretty hard to put a hammer in with this letter so I am including $5 instead. You can buy whatever you want with it.

My main reason for writing is I was wondering with the popularity of “True Blood” and “Twilight” if you’ve seen an uptick in people wanting to make blood withdrawals? Seems there’s blood everywhere I look these days! (This just means I watch too much TV, but I love “Dexter!”) I can’t help but think, with the popularity of these shows, there has to be an artificial demand for blood these days, driven by all the hype!


Sincerely,


Christopher L. Jorgensen

Commentary:

I want to point out I am currently running a Kickstarter Campaign and could use your help. Well, your money actually. If you’ve ever wanted to help out this site, but haven’t gotten around to making a donation this is a great way to do it.

You can also help by spreading this URL far and wide: http://kck.st/JALkickstarter Graffiti it on bridges and zoos, post it on your Facebook page, send it to your parents, get a tattoo. Whatever you think it a good idea. Personally, I’d advise against the graffiti or tattoo, but you get the idea. Let people know.

Thanks!

Every now and again I misplace a response. Then I know I have it, but can’t find it and this bugs the crap out of me. Sometimes I find such letters and I get excited! This is one of those letters. I thought it was gone forever.

And yes, I know they don’t use real blood on Dexter and those other shows, but kids see those shows and want to do those things, and then we have serial killers and vampires! Think of the children.
