Yah my mother is anemic so she can't donate blood either.....
In florida you have to be 16 or older to be able to donate blood and If you are under 18 then you need a parent signature....
My mom would always be ask why I'm always donating blood and when I say its for a good cause... She furrows her eyebrows with skepticism until I say I can be excused form 3 periods of class....then she laughs at me!
But Its good to donate blood (when you can) .. I feel like Im saving someone's life....even though I feel drained and tired after the procedure but Its worth it (at least I think so)
