So back in July 2013 I started donating through the local radio station for their blood drive. I've donated 9 times since then. I have sometimes put pictures of my arm when I donate and try to see why others do it. Then one day on my Instagram, a lady name Kelly liked one of my blood donation posts and she thanked me for donating as it helps keep her alive. I as a donor never get to see the faces of the recipients of my blood donations. So when she commented it put a face to some of the patients in Canada that I was helping. I haven't been able to donate 3 time,s twice because of my tattoos and once because I had become anemic really badly. But I will always continue to donate until I'm ineligible. My blood helps others and I love that!
