Around 41,000 blood donations are needed everyday. 15.7 million blood donations are received in a year in the United States.

There are four types of donations possible, whole blood, platelets, plasma, and double red cells. Blood drives and donations are highly impacting and important to many people in various communities, while donors also receive some health benefits as well.
Donating blood is a clean and simple process that a person can easily integrate into one’s frequent schedule. The donation process consists of four simple steps, registration, medical…

Economical Aspects of Donating Blood
Blood is a crucial part in many medical procedures and emergencies in which organizations such as the American Red Cross are constantly advocating the public to donate it. They advertise that while you are doing a simple task, you may be saving someone’s life. In a study done by Johanne Charbonneau, who has a Ph.D in political science and Natalie Y-Lang Tran, it was found that most people gave blood because they considered it a “useful” gesture and wanted to…

Deontological Duty to “Altruistic” Blood Donation
I. Titmuss’ argument for completely voluntary blood donation
In a global economy where paid donors of human blood are exploited and buyers of blood make significant profit, Richard Titmuss argues in his article “Why Give to Strangers?” that not only is altruistic blood donation morally significant, but beneficial for the good of man kind. In this article, Titmuss draws a contrast between…
We all know that the main functions of the blood are the transport of respiratory gases, digested food or nutrients, waste products, hormones, enzymes and ions from one body part to another, it protects a body against diseases and regulates body temperature. In other words, blood is the essence of life. A body cannot survive without a sufficient amount of blood.
Unfortunately, there are people who don’t have the same chances as we do. Let us take the United States as example. Every two…

It is not nice to imagine right? But these happened in a real life, and some of us may have experienced them already.

However, not only does the company of the products being displayed benefit from these ads, but the people benefit as well morally and contentment.
Without ads, no one would know when a movie, book, or event is taking place. If there wasn 't a constant reminder for a test coming up, people would be upset that it came up unexpectedly. The same can go for a an item or event you are desperately waiting for. If it just came and went without a single peep from a poster or announcement or…
The first event I attended was the Causeway Classic Blood Drive for the service requirement for the Green Certificate. I tried to give blood since I have donated before without a problem and I was hoping it was going to be quick. My thought of it being quick was wrong. I had waited over an hour to attempt to give blood and in the end I could not give blood. I ran into troubles while I was being checked for my blood pressure. At first I was told that she could not hear the blood pressure at…
