Donating blood benefits you, too
While most people donate blood to help others who need it, there are also some health benefits to the donor as well.
When you donate blood a short physical is done on each donor.
To ensure you are in good health your blood pressure, pulse and temperature are taken. A small hemoglobin sample is also taken. This will alert you to any potential problems with your vitals.
