According to Kevin’s photo caption on his Flickr page, he gave a Double Red Cell (DRC) donation for the first time yesterday. With type O- blood, he’s also considered a “Universal Donor” because people of all blood types can receive transfusions of O- blood. This means that Kevin’s blood type is particularly important in emergency situations when there is not enough time to figure out the recipient’s blood type before a transfusion.
The photo posted here is pretty small. Check out a better version on Kevin’s Flickr account here. Thanks to Kevin for saving up to 6 lives with his Double Red Cell donation AND for being a super cute advocate of blood donation!
