What’s your “WHY” for donating blood?
My why for donating blood is very simple. Helping humankind. Helping others help me to be a better citizen.
How has donating blood impacted your life?
The answer is very simple: Personal growth. It’s a call for civility and to help others.
What has your donation experience been like with OneBlood?
I have been to three different OneBlood locations in South Florida. I find the staff very professional, friendly, and caring. I absolutely recommend you guys anytime, any date. Your professionalism is above and extraordinary.
What words of encouragement would you give to donors in the Hispanic Community?
I would like to tell my Hispanic community to first consult with your doctor to see whether or not you’re eligible to donate blood. Once you get the green light, go to the closest OneBlood location and they will let you know the procedures and give you educational material.
I find my body feeling amazing, usually 3-4 days after donating blood. I feel lighter. I feel that my body is rejuvenating. But I also feel that I’m helping other fellow citizens and friends from my neighborhood, from my community and around the country.
