One of the amazing things about blood donating is that there are several different types of donations that you can make. I am going to give you a breakdown of the 4 different types of donations and how often you can make them. 1. Whole Blood donations which can be made every 56 days. 2. Platelet donations can be made every 7 days up to 24 times a year. 3. Plasma donations can be made every 28 days up to 13 times per year. 4. Double Red Cell donations can be made every 112 days up to 3 times per year. Keeping all of you different options in mind, I hope this gets everyone out to the nearest donation center to donate one of the above. Please refer to www.redcrossblood.org for all the detailed instructions. Also, follow me on Twitter @RobinBloodDrive for more information and updates.
