January is National Blood Donor Month - Universal Donor here

January is National Blood Donor Month. 

I have O- blood, which makes me a universal donor, very popular with the blood banks, but have to admit that I've only given blood on about 4-5 occasions. 

The most recent time was for my own mother when she had acute leukemia. I was so very weak for 24 hours after giving, that I haven't done so since, but may try again. It is so important, and I imagine the stress of having a sick Mom may have made me weaker than usual. 

Here is a YouTube about donating blood by United Blood Services.
