I had never donated blood. Not sure why but I guess I never really thought about it. I needed a hip replacement and was told I should donate 2 pints of my own blood in case I needed a transfusion. I ended up getting back both pints. Really opened my eyes to donating for others. Yesterday 10/28/13 I donated my first gallon!! I hope to step up this coming year and be more aggressive in my donations.
