On Friday, March 9 from 10 am-3 pm, Beijing United Family Hospital will be holding a blood drive for all of you out there who have healthy blood to spare and want to add some goodwill to the universe.

General criteria for blood donors:
1. Be between 18 and 55 years old;
2. Have not donated blood within the last 6 months;
3. Weigh over 45 kg (women) or 55 kg (men).

Please keep in mind:
