If a stranger need your blood in a hard situation, let s say in a car accident, you will donate your blood?

If they would let me I would in a heart beat and well I used to all the time. However I had a double transfusion five years ago and then three months later had to have another as a result I am not allowed to donate blood. I would not be alive today if it were not for blood donors.

I have several friends who now go to the hospital I was treated at and they donate blood in my name, in fact the first two years after someone donated blood in my name every month and some months it was more than one person. The day of my transfusion they had close to 45 people donate blood in my name.

Hi meandmy3, It is nice to meet someone who is on the other side of the coin. I am so happy that you received the help that you needed. I would have been a donor, too, had I of known. God bless you!

If I could I would. However, I'm too scared of the needle that they insert in your vein to take the blood. I have had blood transfusion when I got sick with dengue so I owe my life to those who donated the blood whoever they are although the hospital took the blood from the red cross blood bank.

As mush as I hate needles of course. It's the humane thing to do. Remember "do on to others as you wish them to do too you".

If I am actually able to help another in a bad position such as they have lost blood and need some and are the same blood type as I am I would actually go ahead and do so. Life is short and I believe that it is important to help our fellow man whenever we can because I believe in karma myself and it will actually be a positive outcome and in return something really great would happen for us.

My husband used to donate blood in the USa all the time. Now that we're back in Canada, maybe we'll both start. We'll have to think about it. I was on medication for a while, so I was unable to donate because of the medication in my system, but now I'm not taking anything, so I suppose I could donate, if I wanted to.

Sure! why not? As long as i'm healthy enough to do it, why not, right? For now, i guess i'm not allowed to donate blood because i lack sleep and that's pretty bad. I might be anemic or something. That's a no-no. But then if i am healthy then i'd give it a go. I might be his/her only hope to survive so i don't think i still have time to think twice for that.

If anyone needs blood and if he is the same blood group as I am then most definately I would help that person. Giving blood and saving a life is perhaps one of the most noble deeds that humans can do. We in our locality organise a blood donation camp every year.

Yes, I would. I think it is good to help someone even if you do not know him. But aside from that I have been told that donating blood actually have incredible health benefits. I can also feel good about myself, like achieving something important. I have never been scared of needles. However, I have to be reassured that my blood has been tested thoroughly do determine if I am a qualified donor. I do not want to give a stranger some illness too. Have a nice day!

Ice, Blood donation is such an important thing that the idea of choosing donors, except in very rare cases, is irrelevant. Each pint one donates can mean saving the lives of 4 to 10 people. How important is that? When I was on chemotherapy and radiation treatment for my most recent cancer, the doctor thought I would need blood. My students organized the biggest blood drive in the history of South Florida, which was more gratifying than I could possibly express. Ever since I can remember, I've donated blood every 6 to 8 weeks. It's easy, relatively painless, and a great way to help those who need help.
