    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.
