Giving blood, giving back

Katherine gave blood for the first time today.
She's 17, old enough to donate, and took part in a blood drive at school.
She's valuable as a donor - with O+ blood, she's a "universal donor."
She was healthy - she's avoided the nasties that have hit her brother and me - and it will certainly bring good Karma.

I thought O- negative was a "universal donor"...?

I agree that we should donate blood because it is the gift of life. Out of each donation there is the possibility of helping three people. Who knows...the blood you donate may save the life of a family member or friend and if you ever need blood wouldn't it be nice knowing as you helped others that they helped you.
