Dear readers,

June 14th was World Blood Donation Day! We’re sorry to say we missed it, but we’re trying to make up for it today.

We know that for some, the idea of donating blood can be daunting. Needles are never pleasant, and some people have genuine phobias. We are also aware that some people genuinely cannot donate, due to either health reasons or the law your opinions on some of those laws have definitely been voiced in the comments!

But for those who can, it is a vital, life-saving act that is more urgent now than ever before in these very strange and testing times. We’ve compiled the following nine stories about people donating blood. Some are funny, some are educational, and some are reminders as to how seriously the health of the blood being donated is enforced, often admittedly frustratingly so. That being said, if nothing else, we hope we’ve highlighted an important issue we can consider today, and that you enjoy the roundup!
