Finally able to donate

"I FINALLY got to donate blood! I always wanted to donate at the blood drives my highschool had because I wanted a cool wrap on my arm. I also knew the impact I could have on others with my blood. I finally was old enough and went in to donate. However, I was deferred because of a high heart rate (don't work out before donating.) I went back to try again at the next blood drive, this time with a friend. I was super worried about passing out (I usually do when I get blood drawn) but I was just fine! It was actually fun! All of the staff were super nice and hilarious and I had an awesome time grooving to music and watching my blood fill a bag that could save up to 3 people!!!!!" – Michaela
