Cheated by Red Cross

Filed under: Random thoughts — joannestamplis @ 3:27 pm

I felt so cheated. I just found out that the Red Cross actually sell the blood that people donate to those who need them. I have always thought that they will provide blood to those who need them for free. And one day if I need it, I will get them too. Instead, if I ever need it, I will have to pay to get my own blood. I don’t know how I feel about this now. I was supposed to donate blood yesterday but I cancelled it last minute.

I know they said that they need money to prepare and store the blood but I don’t think selling the blood was the way to go. Especially when I found out that the CEO makes quite a lot of money ~ hundreds of thousand a year. I feel like they are making profit with my blood and I don’t agree with that. They are supposed to be non-profit assosiation. Someone should do something about this.



  1. that’s why you donate to the blood bank instead…

  2. Yeah, but me being so ignorant, I thought they ARE the blood bank. Now I have to go some where else to donate.
