That's the slogan of the Canadian Blood Bank; they're always polling for donations It's not just here, either, there's a huge need for blood all over the world, especially O-negative blood (it can be given to anyone of any blood type). It takes FIFTY PEOPLE DONATING BLOOD to save the life of ONE car crash victim. That's a whole professional football team for ONE person! Not to mention all the people who have transplant surgeries, blood diseases, lacerations and other injuries! I went to donate blood for the first time today, but got turned away because my blood-iron levels are too low (five years ago I was anemic enough to faint on the floor at work, I guess I still haven't gotten my iron levels high enough). Have any of you ever donated? If not why not?
