Are you a blood donor?

If you are under 65 years old you can donate blood! Isn't this the ultimate in helping a buddy - one that you don't even know? And maybe one day another buddy, that you don't even know, may help you with his/her blood! You can donate at Alberton City (they're near Woolwworths, bottom level).
