I very much respect Damien for his personal commitment to blood donation and also for using his star power to raise awareness, and encourage others.

It has become so important that I have added a new section to Damien's Wikipedia and IMDb pages.

Damien has made is 16th (that he has mentioned) blood donation!

He shared the news via an Instagram story on his official Instagram page. Stories are only available for a few hours and no share-able / repost-able, but it was a photo of his arm a few days after giving blood with the following words:

“CHEEKY PINT ON FRIDAY

[Photo]

#ONEPINTLIGHTER #GIVEBLOOD @GIVEBLOODNHS “

 

(Damien Molony Instagram Story 17 September 2018)

 

Are you a fan who has been inspired to give blood by Damien? Come and tell us about it here!

About 20 year ago I started to donate blood. It was a struggle, I have hidden veins. They managed the first three visits, but at the fourth they couldn't fnd the vein, so I left very disappointed. I visited a fourth time and again they couldn't fine a vein. I think I was so downhearted I couldn't go again.

I do regret I didn't persever. I think I would have become a plasma donor as I am what is called the universal resispient (AB+)

I so glad that Damien and a lot of his fan do.

Thank you for sharing your blood donation story Ann, it sounds like you were very brave and did persevere! What happened to you is not uncommon, and it is shame that that one time has put you off. Maybe you will feel inspired and able to again at some point? Well done for the donations you have made!

I quite understand, Ann. I received a lot of blood (8 pints) after the birth of my first, and really wanted to donate. However, I took ages to give blood and after half a dozen times was asked not to give again, as it just took too long and it was hard for them to find a vein. I still feel guilty!

Sadly I'm not allowed to anymore (Stupid kidneys). I asked my doctor a few years ago if I could, but he said no. I really would if I could, needles don't bother me at all.

Christmas is 1 month away, and this is the season of giving.

If you're able, give the gift of live this Christmas, give blood!

 

Donating blood really does save lives. If you are generally healthy, over 17 and want to do something that takes little of your time but truly makes a difference, don’t hesitate, take action today. Not only will you be doing something amazing, but you will also be helping Damien’s own campaign for increasing blood donations and if you send your photo to him on twitter, you are in with a chance of a Re-Tweet!

Visit blood.co.uk to find out where your nearest donation centre is and make an appointment today! Take a friend, take your whole family and help spread the word!

If you are unable to give blood, you can still make a difference by sharing this message and joining the campaign to encourage others.
