What’s your blood type? Have you, because of some problem, ever needed blood? Have you ever given blood?
I understand that Thursday is World Blood Donor Day.
I have a pretty rare blood-type. As an A- (about 3.5% of the population) I can receive blood only from A+, A-, AB+, and AB- while I can give only to A- and O-.
AB+ can receive from anyone but give only to AB+, while O- can give to anyone and receive only from O-.
It has been a while since I have given blood. When I was a college student I sold blood pretty regularly. For a few years then I regularly gave blood. When I moved overseas I got out of the practice. It’s time to start doing this again.
Sometimes I write about disaster preparedness. We have a social responsibility, it seems to me, to help in a broader effort. Bad things happen to people and a good blood supply could save lives.
Just for the heck of it, lets have a poll or two.
