I was first introduced to the opportunity to give blood, when I was a junior in high school. I gave blood for the first time when I was 16, I love the fact that taking just a small portion of my time can save 3 lives. Since then I have given 3 times and will be giving again in a few days. The people involved in the donation process are wonderful and very respectful, which makes giving blood enjoyable. I plan to continue giving blood as much as I can for many people can benefit from my blood, especially since I'm O+. I am also a volunteer fire fighter, so I've seen many instances where people could really use blood, but many not always have the access to the needed blood supply. I'm glad to make an impact on people's lives, strangers or not. :)
