Fun fact about blood/donation: There is no just A, B or O, all blood is either + or - because that + and - are referring to the Rh factor in the blood, whether it is present (+) or absent (-). It's a big deal with pregnant people if they're Rh- and the baby is Rh+. And it matters for who you can donate to, notices how only Rh- people can donate to other Rh- people. It's the same thing with blood types - A and B are both types of blood, think of it as a particular kind of puzzle piece, you body produces a puzzle piece, so if different pieces are introduced than what your body makes, it'll be disastrous. However, O is nothing. It's no type. Instead of puzzle pieces it makes little squares that fit no matter where you put them, they're a blank slate. It's why they can give to everyone, but A and B are more limited.
To the point: Anyway, I'm O- and I donate blood, plasma or double reds depending on what's needed that day and when my last donation was.10
The first time I donated blood it was because my friend's daughters was in an accident so I donated blood. I have done it many times after that.21
Of course I would give blood but I don’t know what blood type I am though12

I 100% would give blood to save a family member’s life. I am B+ like my dad. A fairly rare type. My mom is O neg (highly coveted).
My dad has stage 4 kidney disease. There is a distict possibility he may need a kidney transplant. And I would be his most viable option. 😬😬😬😬
Though I am very hesitant because what if I am a match for my boys and one day they need a kidney? 😰😰😰
So, in the end, I would do a lot of testing and a lot of soul searching before I end up donating any of my body parts.
