This week's New York Blood Center blood drive at brought charitable locals out of the woodwork to donate a pint of the red stuff to help out those in need.
So, what Patch wants to know is, have you ever donated blood? What is it that compells you to share something so personal to help someone you'll most likely never meet?
And if you've never donated blood before, why? And are you considering doing so?
We want to know what you think, Massapequa. Tell us in the comments section below.
