Sunnygirl, that's totally ok!  There are people who can't give because of medical reasons, fear of needles, just don't like giving blood, whatever.  And, like I said above, that's no problem!  I really, really want people to understand that this EHell blood donation (both in Blood Donation February and the rest of the year) is for EVERYONE.  You don't actually have to have a needle in your arm to participate at all!

You absolutely get counted in the tally on the 1st page as someone who supports donation!  My hope is that there's awareness of it - even if people don't actually give themselves.

I guessed I timed things wrong, because I donated last week, so I won't be able to donate in February.  Can we count my late January donation as a February donation?

I'm sure I could be persuaded to do that. ;)  (Although, January's tally was really low - you can be added in to bump that up instead.  Completely up to you!)

I'm glad you donated - whether it was last week, this week or next week!  Congratulations. :)

I'm due to give in March but I need to rearrange my appointment as I'm booked on a multiday training course for work that week.

I don''t know when I last donated. How can I find out? 


It was either December or January but I am not sure when and I don't know if I am eligible yet.

Thanks

snowdragon, did you post it here? I'm not seeing you in the last few pages of the thread, so I'm not sure we have a record of it here.

But wherever you donated will.  Was the Red Cross or something like that?  They'll have the records as to your last donation.

Let us know what you find out! :)

I took a break from donation to recover from a nasty cold, but I have my appointment booked for February 16th.  I picked that day because where I am, that's a long weekend, so I have a couple days to recover before going back to work.  Looking forward to being back at it!

I donated 1/31 in honor of my friend's granddaughter.  She passed away 1/24 after a three year battle of adrenal cortical carcinoma.  I'll donate again in March when I'm eligible.  Sorry I missed the timing by a day!

Oh, JH, I'm so sorry for your loss. What an incredibly sweet and generous tribute to her. That's a great way to honor someone. If its ok with you, I'd like to add you to this month's tally. A day off is close enough, and I do want you to get recognition.

How about the 30+ pints from my January office blood drive (that I organize)?

Next one is early April...

Last week I got a message on my answering machine that went something like this:
"Hi! This is So-and-So from [Blood Bank]. We have a real need for your blood type, and we were hoping you could come in...

"Oh. I see you already have an appointment for the 12th. Thank you and have a nice day."

I did have an appointment. I kept the appointment. The blood bank now has another pint.
