Just a friendly reminder that you can not only donate whole blood, but plasma and platelets too. These are just individual components of blood, so because it isn’t whole blood, you can donate more often! It doesn’t hurt any more than giving blood (just the one needle) and you are treated like royalty.
Just so, you know.
The Giant Microbes platelet (which I received from my parents for Easter, because nothing says Easter like blood’s ability to clot) is not affiliated with me, or Canadian Blood Services. But it’s cute. Terribly cute.
