joe says "love whit"

Today Joe honors the legacy of Whitby Tousignant, who led an extraordinary life. Born with hypoplastic left heart syndrome, Whit was saved several times by donated blood. While Whit's family had to say goodbye to him in January of 2012, they celebrate his birthday each year by hosting a memorial blood drive.

Saturday, June 25, will be the seventh annual Love Whit Blood Drive, held by the American Red Cross. Joe hopes you consider giving, as a single blood donation can save up to three lives, and the need for donated blood is especially great now.

To participate in the drive, please visit and enter sponsor code "LoveWhit" to schedule your appointment.

Joe encourages you to learn more about Whit's inspiring life here.
