Memory Book: Donate Blood by Synfull Memory Book: Donate Blood by Synfull
Back in February I celebrated my 10th anniversary of joining dA and wanted to undertake a project to highlight some of my favourite memories from the years gone by. I came up with the idea for a memory book, with a range of 'Polaroids' capturing special moments, friendships and events. As the project is taking far longer than expected I decided to release the images one by one, and assemble them into the scrapbook when the project is ready.

Read below to find out more about the memory, and check out my gallery for more in the series.




Memory


As a teenager I decided that I wanted to become a blood donor and at the end of 2009 I finally signed up and attended my first session. I find it a very rewarding thing to do and over the last weekend, made my 18th donation.

If you are well enough and legally old enough, I highly recommend you give it a go. You never know whose life it might end up saving. :heart:

That's really great a thing to do, thank you for donating the vampires thank you too! I would do it too, but my veins are too freaking hard to find as they are, I'm always glad the ordeal is over whenever I need blood samples taken for my own health checks. On average the doc or nurse need 5-6 tries with me before they get anything. >_>

Most of my family don't donate for the same reason. I can remember visiting my Grandma in hospirtal once and seeing big bruises all up her arms where they had tried (and failed) to get blood samples. Luckily I've ended up with a good vein in my left arm - the last donation went uber fast that it only took around 7 mins.

:giggle: I'm glad I'm not the only one to call them vampires

That's really lucky, I envy people with well-detectable veins! :shifty: All I can hope is that my having to get blood samples taken or needing IVs is reduced to a minimum for as long as possible. :lol:
Please, I have vamp in my username, obviously I'd be calling them vampires too. Blood-sucking has many forms muahaha.

Provided that I don't have to look at the needle, I don't mind. It does feel a bit odd though
