i quite agree. i dont know anyone thats needed a blood transfusion but i give it evrry 3 months or whenever its supposed to be (wee letter comes through the door to tell me its time). its a really good way to help folk, especially if youre poor (aka a student) and cant really afford to give to charities much etc. theyre getting quite strict here thoguh with who can and cant give blood. last time i went they have gotten stricter and they wouldnt let me because i didnt have enough iron or someting so i had to go back a few weeks later to see if i was alright and i was. must have just been a bit under the weather that day or something.
