Three years ago the thought of a needle anywhere near me made me sweat uncontrollably. But today I am a blood donor. I've donated blood 3 times at my high school, and tomorrow will be my 4th. I'm so incredibly proud to be a blood donor, and I try to encourage whoever I can to do it with me. I believe that having a needle sticking out of my arm for 10 minutes is a hell of a lot easier than dealing with the death of someone I care about because they couldn't get a transfusion. Everyone should do it!
