Donate Blood Save Life

Every volunteer was a little excited & nervous at the same time. Most of them had butterfly in their stomach donating their blood for the first time but it was indeed fun & meaningful. First stop, the medical technicians did some qualitative test to screen those who have decided to donate their blood. Thank God I'm well & healthy. Glad to be a universal donor for red cell transfusion (O). So far, only Chei Tai is a universal donor for plasma transfusion, he's an universal recipient (AB).

Just in 15min, 1 pint (450ml) of blood is filled into the plastic bag. This was indeed an interesting experience. I also got a record book & there are 112 columns. I wonder can a person donate so many times before he/she reaches 60 years old?
