I got my One Gallon Pin!!!!

So today I gave blood and got my one gallon pin!!! I know it just a pin but I feel good about it - just wished I would have started donating earlier.

Wow you're a great woman. Three words: I appreciate you. I think it's a great, very honorable way to help others and maybe you've already saved someone's life.

Congrats, congrats, congrats AND THANK YOU!

I could not donate in college (too small).

Started a few years ago. Unfortunately I have been severely anemic the last 4 times I have tried. They send me home with a sample box of Total cereal and tell me to come back. I have an uncommon blood type.

Good for you. Be proud of yourself for donating blood. With the surgeries I have had, the total amount of blood I have received is equivalent to a total of 12 visits from people like you who took the time to donate.

I joined the bone marrow registry a few years ago for that reason. You taking the time IS saving lives, thank you.

I really don't mind giving- my dad always gave so I decided that it is time for me too... I never know if I or someone I love may need blood- or even a few of you that have had to have it. I have a common blood type (good for me but not others that don't have a common type).

I gave when I was in high school. I passed out, on the gym floor. I spilled my juice all over myself and had to wear XXL scrubs and a shirt that said "be a champ give blood" for the rest of the day. I got to nap and skip the rest of my classes though, so all in all a good day lol.

Congrats! You're awesome, hooray for people like you!
