I’m feeling great as I’ve just given blood for the first time in ages. I used to do it regularly but couldn’t donate while I was pregnant or breastfeeding or every time I had a cold from one of the kids or after a child had chicken pox! So it was great to be able to donate again after so long not giving.
I’d be interested to know how many others donate and if not, why not? There are many reasons that some people can’t donate, but also many people who just haven’t really thought of ever doing it. I can’t afford to give too many financial donations to charity but I can afford blood so I’m happy to do it.
