    Anyway to indicate a double? With the Red Cross here, you can do a double donation every 4 months, instead of a single every 2.

    @Pol Rohanson this year we're not set up to indicate how many units you donated per visit, so go ahead and submit the form two times. I'll take it into account for making next year's form though!

    My donation was a double red, as well, but I only did it once.

    I'll make a notation that yours counts for 2 units then, @Alenya Al'Roran so I'll remember for the numbers.

    I'd like to give double red. But apparently I'm too short. :grumble

    They're really strict about who can do double reds. It always makes me feel a little funny when they give the plasma back.

    I am astonished at how often, when I grumble about being too short for double red, people say "can't you just wear heels?"... No. It's not an amusement park ride. They go by the actual height of your actual body because it's a medical concern.

    Yeah. I'm good on the weight requirement, lol. Just too short by about 2 inches.

    I'm not an eligible donor because of my kidney disease (kidney patients run anemic and tend to have weird levels of other things in our blood), but I applaud all your efforts! Thank you!
