What to Do before You Donate Blood
An e-commerce payment solutions provider that has maintained level 1 Payment Card Industry (PCI) compliance since 2012, Allied Wallet is a market leader in online consumer payment processing. In addition to its work, Allied Wallet supports the American Red Cross, which encourages blood donations throughout the United States.
Follow these tips to prepare for donating blood:
1. If you wish to donate platelets, avoid taking aspirin 48 hours prior to your visit.
2. Eat foods that will help you to maintain healthy iron levels in your blood, such as beans, poultry, spinach, and red meat.
3. Try to get a good night's rest the night before the donation.
4. Avoid fatty foods, particularly on the day of the donation, since too much fat in your blood can prevent testing for infectious diseases. You may not be allowed to donate if too much fat is present in your blood.
5. Drink an additional 16 ounces of water prior to making the donation.
6. Take your driver’s license and donor card. If you don’t have a driver’s license, take two other types of identification.
How ASAS Students Benefit from After-School Programs
Under the guidance of chief executive officer Andy Khawaja, Allied Wallet provides online merchant services and payment solutions to clients all over the world. A philanthropic company, Allied Wallet supports numerous charities, including After-School All-Stars (ASAS), a nationwide initiative that aims to encourage more children to participate in after-school activities.
A 2015 study published by the Afterschool Alliance, a collective of schools and nonprofit organizations that provides resources for after-school programs, examined 75,000 ASAS students’ performances in school between 2012 and 2014 and compared the figures to non-ASAS participants. The study discovered an 18-percent decrease in the number of school day absences among ASAS students, with each additional year of participation in ASAS resulting in a further 2-percent reduction in missed days.
Beyond this, the ASAS group demonstrated a decrease of 13.7 percent in chronic absenteeism, which the study defined as missing a minimum of 10 percent of school days, when compared to non-ASAS students. ASAS programs also have positive effects on behavior, with the same study showing that ASAS students are 22 percent less likely to get suspended from school than non-ASAS students.
