I just scheduled my next blood donation appointment (I try to donate every time the bloodmobile comes to work, but occasionally I have a migraine or something).
Looking at the Blood Bank’s website, I have donated 1 & 1/8 gallons of blood since 2006. 9 donations. I think that’s pretty cool. Each donation can potentially save up to 3 lives, so that’s 27 people that I may have helped.
I have the 2nd most rare blood type in the US (B-), and I feel good that other people with my blood type can get some blood because I donated. Even though I don’t like donating, and it makes me feel a little weak all day, I still feel like it’s a good thing to do, even if it does make me a reverse vampire.
