I tried to give blood once at my university, and they told me they don't take blood from my ethnicity, for scientific reasons. Otherwise, I would love to help if I can :)

From what I know, they don't take blood if you have traveled to certain countries in the past 12 months or so. The restrictions is because of some prevalent diseases in those countries. See 'travel outside the U.S' section here: http://www.redcrossblood.org/donating-blood/eligibility-requirements/eligibility-criteria-topic

Unfortunately, I can't give blood because I'm on a medication (Zydis) that makes it unable for me to give blood otherwise I would.

I called the Red Cross here in Victoria and they said because I am on Zydis I wouldn't be able to donate. That was last year. Maybe something has changed. I will call them again tomorrow.

I wish I could donate blood, by I have two different types of anemia and was told I cannot donate. I will find another way to participate!
