What motivates you to donate blood?

What you eat for breakfast on the day?

Do you hate needles and have some tips you can share (like what  happy place do you go to)?

All the best and keep up the good work.

    Thanks for putting this site together, Captain Blood!

    I donated blood for the first time this month. I was motivated by the knowledge that donating blood would have next-to-no negative impact on me, but a significant positive impact on other people.

    Nonetheless I put it off for ages, scared of the needle. What made me finally go in to donate was simply booking an appointment and putting it in my calendar – once I had booked, I felt as if I had to go (even though you can call off the donation at any time, of course).

    I was pretty nervous in the waiting room and at the little interview they do, but once the actual needle went in all the nervousness went away! It was actually quite cool to watch the bag fill up with blood, and I’m not worried at all about donating again at my next appointment.

    If there are any other v*gans out there wanting to donate blood but putting it off, my advice would be to start by simply booking an appointment, turning up, and seeing how it goes 🙂

      Hello Emily,

      Thanks so much for your comments!
      Yes you’re right, it’s so easy to donate and the benefits to others makes it worthwhile.
      Anyway, I really appreciate your input and taking the time to join our community.

      Thanks again.

      Captain Blood.
