Blood donations

HARBURG, GERMANY - JUNE 08: A woman donates blood at the blood donation service Hamburg on June 8, 2011 in Harburg, Germany. Hospitals and the Red Cross in northern Germany have appealed to the public for blood donations as a result of the current outbreak of enterohemorrhagic E. coli, also known as the EHEC bacteria.

Would You Give Blood if there Would be a Monetary Incentive Involved? [POLL]

I give blood periodically at the Central Jersey Blood Bank and do it out of a sense of obligation.

Besides, to my knowledge, one of the questions is whether or not I have “Chaka Khan” disease, and while I’ve always loved her music, I can honestly say I don’t think I do...
