I started a few years back and by now I have donated 19 units.

I am sure there are a few people here that can beat that so please tell how much you have given ?

Also - if you don't donate why is that ?

Pretty good ! You guys have actually done something :p
I am trying to catch up with my old man, he did 169 before he started chronic meds.

I get quite nervous each time but it's the right thing to do. I'm super scared of needles :( but it barely even hurts actually

Wow 19 is hectic, well done! :D

No idea, stopped donating the day the biatch turned me into a pin cushion. Really, how many tires do you need?

I don't donate blood at all.

Not scared of the needle but I am terrified of blood. Just the thought of watching blood go out of my system and I want to pass out.

:(

26 or 27 times..

Missed the last donation day/s due to a flu shot earlier that week + not at university so i kinda have to go out of my way.. been donating for last 10 yrs now tho skipped 2 yrs + not often donate more that 3 times. Got that weird dent/hole where they often draw from :s thankfully i make them do it from the same spot else i'd look like a major druggie :erm:

How many units do they get per "time"?

I would do it if they made it easier. Came to the office or something.

For me to go to them... ja. They should have stands at the shopping malls etc. How long does it take?

Also, how has it been "Politicised"? Beauracracy and me don't mix too well...
