Like donating blood...

So I just donated blood, and I was wondering how many people go out of their way to help people? I mean, no one HAS to donate blood, but you can, and you could save lives, but does anyone actually do it? I'm just wondering how FPSB users are like. Also, this gives me the perfect opportunity to share a quick anecdote. One of my school mates was donating blood today, and for the sake of a name, lets call him Bob. When he finished donating, and the nurse pulled out the needle from his arm, they instructed him to "Hold This Here". They meant for him to hold down the gauze over the needle's entrance point so they can wrap it up. Instead, Bob thought she said "Brush your hair", so he starts brushing his hair with his hand. Apparently the nurse then thought he was hitting on her, so yeah. His hearing needs fixing. Right, anyways, do you people go outta your way to help others? The Poll is anonymous.

    I am registered as a donor on my license for when I die. It's not like I will need my organs when I am dead.

    That is correct. In other words, O is screwed when it comes to a blood transfusion and limited supplies, but AB is the safest because he can accept the widest variety of blood types.

    Donated blood for the first time on March 4th this year. It was a pleasant experience, and I plan on donating every 56 days from now on. My mum has been donating for about a year or so, too. I'm also thinking about getting registered onto the bone marrow transplant list. My friend is on, and it seems like a really good cause.

    I plan on donating blood as soon as I get the chance since it can save lives. While I haven't done anything to save lives, I have constantly gone out of my way to help the elderly carry things, and things like that. Of course, the same goes for the non elderly too. I too plan on getting the donor thing on my license when I get old enough, and on the bone marrow thing. My uncle has cancer, but I do not have the right blood type. :'(

    I can't think of any particular instances where I go out of my way to help, but I don't donate blood and I don't donate organs. I pick stuff up when people drop it and hold doors open, and I did my mandatory 40 hours community service hours for the school board, but those don't really count as going out of the way. I go out of my way to help friends though, with their problems and stuff.

    I plan on becoming a donor. I came up with a pretty interesting concept some time ago too: I think to increase the amount of people to become donors, the government should make it so that people who have a donor card should get priority in any case of an accident and need an organ. That way it is like entering a special club.. If you are ready to donate your organs at death to help save someone else, they should be ready to help you before anyone else.

    But what I came up with would get more people to become donors. Not everyone is as selfless as you. If you tell people they'll have priority if they are willing to be donors too, there'll be more donors in the world. Currently you're born as a non-donor and you have to opt to become a donor. I hear in Britain, they are making it so that by default you are a donor and you may choose to opt out.
