I have sold my blood in the past,but have not donated it. I would if a family member needed it,but short of that,I probably wouldn't. I had open heart surgery when I was young and think I got a lifetime of giving blood then. I know it's a good thing to do,but not fun.

Yes I have donated blood once. It was okay. It felt like an ant bite.

Yes, I donated for the first time almost 12 weeks ago, so I am due for another appointment on the 20th of this month =D I'm quite happy to donate without payment or anything like that - we are doing a service for other people, and if I or any of my loved ones, end up in the hospital and in need of a blood transfusion, it will be because of other donors that we will be able to have one - I am happy to be able to provide that for someone else somewhere in the world =) Our local donor centre also provides us with a drink and some food if we would like some after giving blood, so that we keep our energy and blood sugar up =) Have you ever given blood, Xiaowen?

I did, in a fight, on the playground, while in 5th grade. :) I don't like needles but I've donated to get some concert tickets. I think a lot of promoters could fill the blood banks of this country if they had a ticket exchange for donated blood. Once I did donate I found out my blood type and that I have good cholestrol. Some places will give you gift certificates to eat out at some of your favorite restaurants if you donate at lest 3 times a year.
