Berit is a high school student in Byron, MN who became a blood donor "because it is an easy way to give back to the community and people, and anyone can do it as long as you are willing to put the time into it."
Berit initially created this video for a class, and she explains that
the teacher encouraged students to choose a subject that was near and dear to their hearts.
"We had to choose something that we had a strong feeling about and wanted other people to know about," explains Berit. "I am hoping that each time people see it, they will become more comfortable and more willing to save lives by donating blood. Once you give blood, you feel great about it and you want to keep doing it."
