    If you can, please donate blood

    Hurricane Michael is going to hit more than a few hard.  Please consider giving blood if you are able.

    3. Because some may not trust the Red Cross,

    here’s a cool little locator that works for wherever you live:

    AABB Center for Cellular Therapies – Where to Donate Blood
    AABB encourages eligible individuals to donate blood regularly to help ensure that this lifesaving resource is readily available to patients whenever and wherever it is needed.  To find an AABB-accredited blood donation center near you, please provide at least a state or zip code using the Blood Bank Locator…

        6. You're welcome :)

        I’ll probably set up an appointment for next week, but I found a donation center just a few miles from here. I’ll donate whatever they need. In my experience, they’ve always pushed people to donate plasma over simply blood. It’s been many years since I have, but even then, there was a greater desire for plasma.

    5. Thanks, Aerows. Just replied to your PM and then I found this OP.

    I’m making it a sticky and encouraging everyone to post helpful suggestions.

    7. You must weigh over 110lbs in order to reach the requirement to give blood.

      but hopefully others can.
