I gave blood today and was wondering who else gives blood.  I try to do it at least 3 times a year.

Yes I do. Blood bank also asks me to do plasma. But haven't fine it yet.

I have done plasma, its not to bad.  They usually ask me to do a double donation because I have B- blood.  I would have tonight but I had 3 hungry kids at home waiting for me to go to the store after.  I started donating blood years and years ago on Valentines day when I was alone and had nothing better to do!

Quoting marmie41: Yes I do. Blood bank also asks me to do plasma. But haven't fine it yet.

I usually fall into the tattoo timeframe, and end up getting another one before I'm out of it. I have a handful of times in the past though.

I haven't donated blood in years.  I used to do it annually when I worked at the Medical Center (1981-1994).

Nope, I am not able to due to anemia.

Yes we do.  Do you go to the Red Cross or go when they travel to your local church etc.?

I haven't done it in a while.  I have donated over a gallon though.

Yes. DH and I both donate every 8 weeks. DS #1 started when he turned 16.

We donate at our local community blood center. It's super-convenient, you can make an appt or just walk in.
