  • I'm a bit anemic too......I have to take iron every day or else Im all woozy.

    I help give back by dropping off cans at a food pantry, even some of my sons clothes I give to a few day care centers and shelters... and lately at my sons school.......for those in need to have Thanksgiving.

  • Thats a great thing you are doing mmmegan38!

    I am an organ donor and I pray that when I go some one can use SOMETHING I have to live......that is a great gift to give once gone to help another live and pray their body does not reject it!

  • I don't donate blood....i'm a diabetic and I tend to pass out and have extremely low blood sugar just when I have blood tests. But I adopt a family every Christmas and give food to the local food bank, donate used clothes and toys and donate coats to the local Coats 4 Kids charity event

  • I have given blood and platelets before, but bone marrow is hard core. Good for you! You are awesome!
