32. Donate blood for the first time - Day 7

Did you know that you can make an appointment to donate blood in about 5 minutes. Go too www.donateblood.com.au and you'll see your local centres, and can make the appointment online.

I haven't actually gone in for the donation yet. My booking is for the 1st of November, and I'm pretty terrified. But I know that it's an excellent thing to do. Especially us Jorna's, we're bleeders. I might be like my dad too, the very special universal donor. His blood goes in a special section. Fancy right ?

Yah! I've probably already told you this, but I receive an infusion of a product made from donated blood every three weeks to keep me healthy, so it's a very big heartfelt thankyou from me!

I do it when I get to town. I absolutely hate it but I do it because it's such a good thing to do. You will feel good afterwards.
I felt even better about it when I needed 3 bags after having a miscarriage.
good on you.

As I said, good community service PLUS free biscuits!

I'm a transfusion girl, so thank-you! It is unfortunate that whenever I think of donating, I can never donate because of one reason or another :(

What a wonderful thing to do. I recieved 3 or 4 bags of blood when i was younger, I can't donate though :( So its good to hear that other people are taking it up!

Oh good on you! I am not allowed to give blood due to living in the UK until 1986, which seems very annoying, I feel sure that I do not have mad cow illnesses.
Any how. Hurrah for you!
