    You need another choice for your poll.... some of us lived overseas and are not allowed to give blood, even though we might want to :(

    Anytime I see a blood donation bus I let the vampires have at me.

    I've also recently signed up for the bone marrow donor's list.

    I would but I am a needle phobe. It's weird considering how many fights I have been in and the fact that I have Tats. :rolleyes:

    There should have been a "wish i could, But I'm to lazy". Or " They only have blood drives when I am at work".

    I haven't yet, but I plan on it in another week or so. About once a month there's a blood drive outside my office and i decided to do it last time but they closed shop before I got the balls to do it. Next time I'll be the first in line.
