In honor of her birthday, a Decatur woman wants you to give the gift of life.

This will be the 3rd year that Angeleck Williams will team up with LifeSouth and hold a birthday blood drive. 

This year, she hopes to get 44 donors in honor of her age, although she says it would be even better if she could top last year's total of 62 donors.

Statistics from LifeSouth say that one pint of blood can save up to three lives.

For Angeleck, the best birthday is one she can share with others.

"My philosophy is you've got to give to get and if I can give somebody joy on my day, to just come out and have a fun day with me, I get so much out of that," said Angeleck.

The blood drive is Thursday from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. It's at the Byrd, Smalley and Adams Public Accountants office at 237 Johnston Street SE in Decatur. Everyone, even kids and those who can't donate, are invited to come out and have a cupcake with the birthday girl.
