If you wanted to donate your weight must be 50kg and over.So i went and filled the form which i was supposed to sfter that i want and my blood was taken. To me i knew that there is a person who needs that blood and if i can donate to them,why cant i? because to them its means a lot and i know i can save life.And am proud of myself for being a donor.
