To give blood, you have to be 17 (16 with parental consent) and weigh (I believe) 110 lbs.

Wolf, it’s not nice to publicize that your daughter weighs more than 110 lbs, it could make her part if the shidduch crisis.December 2, 2012 1:14 pm at 1:14 pm #910009popa_bar_abbaParticipant

She’s 16. A little too young to be a part of a shidduch anything.

Wolf – that’s awesome. All my children are type 0 and I have been telling them for years how important it is that they give blood when they are old enough. I hope they join the ranks of those who donate.December 2, 2012 4:52 pm at 4:52 pm #910013gefenParticipant
mod 42 – LOL
Wolf – You should be very proud of her. As far as her being too young at 16 for shidduchim – hey you never know. 😉December 2, 2012 4:56 pm at 4:56 pm #910014popa_bar_abbaParticipantDecember 2, 2012 4:59 pm at 4:59 pm #910015

Thank you for the kind words.

We’ve been stressing to our kids how important this is for a long time. Even when they were too young to give for themselves, we brought them with us whenever we donated blood. The message sunk in as each kid was eager to give and was happy when they finally turned 16 and were able to donate for the first time.
This past week was the first time we all gave as a family (as this was the first time my daughter [who is my youngest] was able to give).

Hospitals are always accepting blood donations even when there is no blood drive. Here is the information for Maimonides: http://www.maimonidesmed.org/Main/ClinicalServices/Blood-Donation-Center-22.aspx
While the American Red Cross has no upper age limit, Maimonides has an upper age limit of 75 years.December 2, 2012 6:48 pm at 6:48 pm #910017HealthParticipant
PBA – Looking back at that old post -I started wondering – How come noone asks you to donate fat? Even though I won’t give blood -I most certainly would give anybody who wanted some of my fat.
