I have been donating since I was a student at The Minneapolis College of Art and Design (1997-2002)---through the Memorial Blood Donors Organization based in the metro area of Minneapolis, MN. I was fortunate to give my last pint for this wonderful organization in April, 2007. They gave me a 5 gallon pin and I was epecially proud because there are so many recautions that eliminate donors from giving. I resumed my donations with the Red Cross in Utica and later in Syracuse, NY. It is an honor to qualify for this unique of all gifts to others.
