Blood donation is one of the best things you can do for your fellows. It’s easy, in Korea you get a little gift, and you save the life of someone anonymously. I can think of few better things a person could do.
I have had challenges giving blood in Korea trying to translate the questions properly but people have always been willing to help. I haven’t given blood this year yet because I haven’t seen a blood bus at my university. maybe this is a good thing. At my previous university, the city was relatively flat (well, relatively) while I now work atop a big, steep hill. Even walking down this hill requires some balance and effort and you shouldn’t exert yourself after giving blood.
I hope the kids in this picture from the Chosun Ilbo are going to give blood, rather than have just given blood.
