Chicago's blood supply is critically low. If you've never donated blood, or if it's been a while since you last donated, you should definitely think about doing it within the next week or so, especially if your blood type is one of the needed ones (O-, A- or B-). LifeSource has 21 donation centers in Chicago and the 'burbs; one's probably near you.
