That's a pretty amazing story. What a nice thing to do. I give blood as well because it's easy and makes me feel like I'm doing something important for the community. It's easy to write a check, and I do that, too. But I like the personal touch of the blood donation.

600 donations over 60 years is 10 a year or once every 36.5 days. I believe blood can be donated only once every 56 days.

Herbert you may want to read the article again.
"Mitchell donates blood components such as platelets through a specialized two-hour process that allows him to donate as many as 24 times a year. Whole-blood donors are limited to about six donations per year, center officials said."
Not only is he contributing life blood...calculate the hours he has given.
Are you a blood donor as well? The life you save could be your own.
"A" Blood Donor :-)
