    No. I feel terrible for not donating, but I am extremely, extremely needle-phobic so I don't see myself going any time soon. Hats off to those who do, though.

    I donate every 8 weeks. I'm O- so I feel guilty if I don't.
    Plus, I get a free T-shirt and cookies every time.

    I've only donated once, for the first time, this July (though I had been planning to do so for a few years... :p). But I'm planning to donate regularly. Oh, and I'm AB+, and that's quite rare...

    No - I'm not 18 yet - but as a healthy O+ and thus universal donor, I plan to :)

    Hmm, I guess I should've also included an "I'm afraid to donate blood (needle-phobia or other)" option... Too bad the polls here can't be updated...

    A few times, but I should do it more regularly.

    Yeah, I did so several times. Too bad they dont hand out drinks and food when donatinglike in other countries. [face_frustrated]

    :p

    No, because the super picky red-cross won't take my blood because I wasn't born in the U.S., which doesn't really make sense to me because both of my parents are American.

    You can do it at 17 in the UK :p

    I went to do it, but they didn't take it. I'll go to the next one near me though. I like needles, for some odd reason :p

    I do... I have 4 or 5 times. Not lately though. But my work has a program you can donate through, so I think i will start again.
