Who are eligible to give or donate blood?
Strangely, it takes just as long (or just as little) to help save a life. In just about an hour, you can help make the difference between life and death for someone. So, they too can enjoy another Friday night out, or another round of The Sims™. Giving the gift of blood is a simple way to make a big difference. To be eligible you must: * Be age 17 or older * * Weigh at least 110 pounds * Be in good health * Some states allow 16-year-olds to donate with parental consent. For more information or to schedule an appointment to give blood, call 1-800-GIVELIFE or sign up online. Sources: http://www.givelife2.org/youngblood/default.
