  1. I wish I could donate blood. I donated plasma when I was in college. They couldn't find my veins, were sketchy if I should donate because of being on allergy meds, and I fainted afterwards. They told me not to come back. Ha!

    It's a great thing to do though.

  3. I can't give blood. I'm anemic, but God bless those who do and can.
