    Its a great service and I feel happy to have been a part of it. I utilized the opportunity in two ways.
    1. Giving blood to help someone in need
    2. To educate my child about blood donation

    Thanks for the opportunity Aditya ji/Ram garu
    Sorry, couldn't be a part of volunteer team due to prior engagements.

    I haven't RSVP yet as i am not sure, Will be attending a Rappelling event in the morning, Is it advisable to turn up and Donate as i would tired already? I will come over to volunteer otherwise.

      Hi Siddhartha.
      No issues if you are tired.... you should just take care to replenish the fluids you lose in the morning...

      February 10, 2013

    • Abhishek M.

      It's just a myth that blood donation makes you weak... it takes half to one hour for the body to make changes to compensate for the blood donated... this time period increases if you've lost a lot if fluids because of loose motions, vomiting or accidents...

  • nagaraju

    raam count me in...does smoking before(1 or 2 hours) blood donation matters?

    February 6, 2013

    • Abhishek M.

      Hi Nagaraju,
      Many blood banks do not have restrictions over smoking before donation. But the chances of developing dizziness is higher if you smoke one hour before or one hour after smoking.
      For the time being, one could cut off his craving for a cigarette by drinking more fluids like coffee, juices, cool drinks.
      Having a heavier than usual breakfast can make your body more prepared to donate blood.
      Please do come in
      Thanks,
      Abhay

    A very welcome move Ram Sir,
    we met in khajaguda a few days back.
    I will be unable to donate as I donated last week. But I will try to get a friend.

    I think people should become aware of blood donation, it's benefits, and the truth about myths around donation.

    I have donated 20 times in the past 10 years, I donate every six months, once around the time of my birthday, and once around march.

    Hope I can be of use the next time around.
    Keep up the Good Work.
    Abhay
