once per month, but they pay us here in Colorado for it, and they wont pay or allow you to donate more often. It's $50 and about 90 minutes of your time ~ not too bad to help others out for sure!

How much do you donate if itzzz a pint per month then itz way to high than the allowed limit i think itz i pint per 3 months if u donate too often ur at a risk of developing blood cancer due to too high haematopoeisis.

Itz good to know tat u have resolved to donate blood in the future but if ur a female u have to be a bit careful about your hemoglobin level so better get it checked before u donate.

I want to donate blood but i'm borderline anemic and I can't donate. My husband donates blood as often as he can.
