Blood Drive Discussion Thread

I know this is usually BDY's job, but I already went this month, and would like to go again in January. Anyone else up for getting this going?

We are confirmed for donating

Date is set January 13, 2008!

Time: 1:30 PM

Hehehe, thanks Tek...
I know this month we were suppose to go but with my new job and other things I've been super busy.

Hmmm....I tried to gather a few regulars (raid3n and cskc-7) to go this Sunday but I received an email that they were all booked solid.

I'll figure out something

well a couple of vials for testing then about 450mL for actual usage, but they actually measure it in grams... somewhere around 600 if i remember correctly. sounds like a lot, but it really isn't.

...and the average person has 5 litres of blood in total. They take enough such that they suggest you avoid strenuous activity for 6-8 hours after donating.

after realizing how much donated blood means to a lot of people, i have decided to donate blood as well.
just lemme know when and where it's going to be, and i'll do my very best to go with you guys (too busy with school).
or if i can't join you guys, i'll just go get it done with my brother or something.

driving's really not a problem, I don't know about riding a motorcycle though, but it shouldn't be an issue either. i'm a pretty small person 5ft n 120ish lbs and i feel FINE after... no dizziness what-so-ever. so yeah BDY set a date, maybe we can do it in Dec. or sth for those who didn't go in Nov.

BDY: When you decide on a date let me know! =) I'll be more than happy to come donate again.

Hopefully THIS time nothing goes wrong -.-

Last time I went with school, I could only give like half of what I was supposed to fill up.

I seem to have reallllly low blood pressure, I didn't feel woozy or anything after, but it just seemed to take a really long time for any blood to come out so the nurse stopped it after I had barely filled up half.

I ended up going by myself anyway. Figured that I had my hand held the first time, should be alright on the second.

I'm due to give again shortly after the Xmas break, so if you guys arrange a blood drive, count me in. (as long as it's on a weekend since I'm usually working during their business hours)
