Eat Mor Chikin

I got turned down to donate platelets because my red blood cell level isn't high enough. The Children's Hospital's supply is low and I want to help, so I've been eating a lot of red meat and spinach. I have almost always been low on iron, so this is normal for me.

It's been okay, but I really do prefer chicken. This Thursday, I'll be eatin' some chicken and enjoying the delicious crushed ice at Chick-Fil-A. Our friends from the twins club organized a Spirit Night at the Fort Collins Chick-Fil-A. For every person who says they are there to support Esther Alvarado, the restaraunt will donate 20% of their order to our family. This is going on all day, Thursday, October 11th.

From 5-8pm there will be a petting zoo, face painting, and more fun family activities. They are looking for some people to help hand out flyers, if you have a little time, you can sign up here.

So, save the cooking for another night, buy your work group a tray of nuggets or brownies, or let your kids play during lunch. You have to say you are there for Esther for the restaurant to donate the 20% and you can eat in the store or go through the drive through.



  1. I've been meaning to go in and donate platelets... this gives me a little kick in the behind to do it already. Thank you for the reminder.

    1. That is great, Carrie. You can donate platelets locally or in Denver. You can donate platelets twice a month as long as you haven't donated whole blood in 56 days. I have some thoughts on intergenerational fellowship, I will try to send an email.
