Bleeding for a Cause:Benefits of Donating Blood


It's a common question everyone asks when it comes to donating blood. Forgive me, for I just can't stop mentioning "blood" and "donation" because after all , we're talking about donating blood,right? Well, these are just few benefits that I knew through my experience and because I repeatedly asked the Red Cross Volunteers whenever I donate blood.

1. Blood donation is something personal. I might be able to save other people's lives when they will be needing blood transfusion. If any of my family or friends may be in need of blood in the future, I can always withdraw from the blood bank because I have donated 5 bags already. But, of course, when you withdraw blood, you have to pay some little amount as blood processing fee. The blood that is donated is being filtered from any unnecessary materials thus, if you receive a transfusion, it has already undergone the process.

2. You'll know your Blood Type.  If it's your first time to donate, they will have a blood testing to know your blood type.It can be either blood - Type A(Red) , Type B (Yellow), Type AB (Pink) and Type O (White). They have color coding on different blood types.

3. You will receive a mini physical to check up. It will include your  Pulse, Blood pressure, Body temperature and Hemoglobin. 

4. Blood donation removes some of the excess iron. These can cause free radical formation in the body. In fact, studies have shown that men who donate blood on a regular basis have a lower risk of heart disease. With heart disease being the number one cause of death in males, this is, indeed, an important health benefit of donating blood. (

5. New Red Blood Cells. During blood donation, you will lose red blood cells and because of that, your body will produce new Red blood cells thus you'll have a new blood supply whenever you donate blood.

More than anything else, for me,  the thought of saving someone else life is already a great benefit to those who will be needing it - may it be a family member or maybe us. :)
