Tips for donating blood for the first time?
I volunteered today at a blood drive with a couple of girls I do Girl Scouts with. While I was there I learned that I could donate, as long as I have a parent sign off on it, because I turned 16 a couple weeks ago. I would really like to donate blood and the next drive is in a week, I know I must weigh more then 110, which I do so I think I am good to go, unless something happens when they prick my finger. Neither of my parents have ever donated so they have nothing to tell me. Do you have any tips or stories for my first time?
