For One Another 2014 Challenge: Donate blood


I have never given blood.  Many, many years ago I tried to at a blood drive where I worked.  I was told that I didn't weight enough to do so.  

I checked the Red Cross website for eligibility requirements.  Here they are:

Blood Donors Must:

  • Be healthy*
  • Be at least 17 years old in most states, or 16 years old with parental consent if allowed by state law  see more information for 16-year old donors »
  • Weigh at least 110 lbs.
    Additional weight requirements apply for donors 18 years old and younger and all high school donors.
Looks like I still can't give blood.  Guess that's not a bad thing seeing that I'm barely 5 feet tall!    ;)

Seeing that I don't meet the weight requirements, how about YOU give blood on my behalf?

You may save a life!
