A reader wonders about it over at the Register.
I’ve always hoped blood donation was corporal works of mercy, as it would allow me to fulfill the command to care for the sick without actually having to be around a sick person. Another question about donation would be: Does getting cookies and juice after a donation count as receiving your reward on earth, and therefore your act counts as nothing in the next world? I’d hate to lose my reward for a handful of oreos.
