I've got a few things that keep me from donating blood though:
1)    I wouldn't know where to donate blood

Really?  I think that's terrible on the part of health authorities.  Over here, blood donation is advertised locally on signposts, and you can just go along at the given time and place.

I never used to like needles much, but with blood donation it just feels like the prick of an injection, and then you don't really notice it anymore.

Here it's not very common to donate blood and I honestly think not many people know that there is such a thing as donating blood. It's not talked about as much as organ donation, which is actually very strange, because blood is needed as well.

I wouldn't say it's common here to give blood either - I think only about 6% of people here do.  But I think the government is trying to change that - when I was in my last year at school, we had a talk from people from the hospital, about blood donation, which was a good idea and definitely convinced some people I know to do it.

I went to donate plasma once, but it kind of didn't work. They pump blood out of your body, the blood is separated from the plasma and the blood is pumped back in. But somehow the flow wasn't going very well (can't explain it any better, sorry) and the next day I couldn't move my arm anymore. It got swollen and it got all green, blue and black. It got worse over time, so that my whole underarm was kind of blue-ish. But, of course, after 2 weeks or something it got better and I even went to donate plasma again, but it didn't work, they had to stop in the middle o the procedure...
But I want to go to donate blood, I guess that won't turn out so bad

There was this show on tv and there was this little girl waiting for a kidney. There was also a little boy, waiting for that same kidney, though he was older than the girl was. Who do you think deserves the kidney more?

Interesting thought, Pamela.  I personally don't think it would be fair to say who 'deserves' a kidney more than the other.  Obviously the best case scenario would be to give them both a kidney.  But I suppose if the choice had to be made, then it should go to the person that needs it most urgently, and maybe another kidney would be available by the time the other one needed it.
