Blood Suckers





Since as far as I can remember being in Australia, I wanted to donate blood. Actually, thinking about it now. I wanted to do it for my 16th Birthday but since that was the year I moved from Africa to Australia I never tried.

Well, 7 years later on my Brothers 18th Birthday we went to donate blood. That day Anthony and I saved 6 lives together.  WOOH!

Above that we learned that our blood has a short shelf life - explains why they always need more blood. 

Platelets can be kept for 5 days, Red blood Cells for 42days and Plasma for up to a year. Mind Blown - I don't know about Anthony but I will be going back!
