Pelicans are considered as a symbol of blood donation. There is a legend behind it.
One of the largest flying birds, the omnivores are revered by Christanity as the epitome of care and nurture. It is believed that in times of dearth of food a pelican would incise its own body for its kids to feed on it.
Here’s hoping the post makes you remember that certain people are in need of blood and it is only us who can help them.
Once in a while donate blood 🙂
And here is a video of a man teaching his pelican how to fish !
