I donated blood all this month, negative blood types are getting 50 bucks a pop due to a blood shortage in Richmond. There is a dangerous lack of negative blood in Richmond. If you have a negative blood type, donate! After my latest yearly trip to Planned Parenthood showed my blood as clean in testing, I decided to be a donor again a little while ago. The lab workers may poke you, prod you, drug test you, and ask you a million weird questions. However donating blood and plasma does save the lives of people who need it badly.
