I started donating when I was 16, at the end of my junior year of high school. I felt compelled to donate because one of my teachers at school was in great need of donations and the blood drive was in honor of her. I also have known many others in my hometown that have benefited from the help of donations from people like me. I even donated blood right before my senior prom, and had a huge yellow bruise on most of my arm. I definitely don't regret it though. I try to donate whenever possible, and don't plan on stopping until I am completely unable.
