On Christmas Eve I didn't photograph a typical commercialized story with Santa and presents. It was a special holiday story, full of the spirit of giving and helping others. I photographed a gentleman who was donating platelets. He's been donating blood and platelets for over twenty years, and always makes a special effort to do so on the holidays when most people get too busy to stop in to donate. In addition to his donation on Christmas Eve, he has an appointment for New Years Eve also.
It was an uplifting and fun assignment (besides my one squeamish to blood moment) to photograph to start off my holidays.
