Disc Golfers do Good

We contribute to our communities in a lot of different ways. Food gatherers and other charity tournaments are what come to mind. Blood donation is another way, though not usually done in a group.

Let's get a count of how much blood has been donated in aggregate by the DGRUS community. I know there are more out there. If you've ever donated blood, even once, join up, and encourage others!

I'm o+ and just recently received my 5 gallon pin from the Florida Blood Service. It's easy and you get cool things for doing it. Best of all its knowing I might have saved someones life is rewarding enough for me.

I first donated in high school ('87) to get out of class. The next time was '97 to get out of work. Maybe 5 more times since then. The last time was because my hemoglobin was too high. Anyway, about 7 units total.

My blood type is B negative(rare), what is everyone else?

This is a very worthy cause! I am currently up to 27 gallons.
