Blood Donations?

Do you donate blood? If so why or why not?  I am O+ and try to donate when I can. I almost needed a blood transfusion once; so if my blood can help save a life so be it! :-)

 I have not-- but not because I won't, I just haven't had the opportunity.

I did until I got pregnant, then I had my babies, my iron was low, I was breastfeeding. I will start again, now that I'm all good to go!

I use too but I have always been anemic and on the border line when giving so at this point I no longer give. My dh does though! He is also 0+! : )

I never have.  I never weighed enough and now after having my babies I am severely anemic so no giving blood even though I now weigh enough.
