NZ Blood 300+ Donor 13.06.12 26
I can't remember when I started donating blood, but it seemed like a useful thing to do. Being O+ is as common as they come - but I will never forget what one nurse said when I said "O for Ordinary" - her reply was "yes, and we need it the most". That was very perceptive comment, and made me feel quite special.

I do remember the changes that have happened to the process of taking blood - more efficiency and more comfortable for the donors. Changes to just about everything. Except perhaps the size of the needle!
