Donate blood to save life

Every time a celebrity posts a picture of winning some award or a romantic photo, everyone seems to go crazy about it. People share such posts numerous times. A romantic photo of celebrities takes social media by storm with many people re-sharing it along with captions like, "I wish I could have someone like this", or "Future Goal".
But when someone puts up a picture of him or her donating blood, it receives criticism. Many wrongly interpret that he or she is bragging about it-not raising awareness as she or he claims. For some strange reason, a romantic photo or a picture of some celebrity winning an award seems to be more important than saving someone's life.
Such a mentality needs to be changed. And the change should come from young people. Imagine a scenario when someone post about donating blood and it is applauded. Many others will be motivated to donate blood and one can only wonder how many lives will eventually be saved. Praise people who donate blood, their actions are helping to save lives.
