Maimonides Bikur Cholim constantly does blood drives all over Flatbush and Boro Park. (You can follow them on Twitter @bloodtext for updates, but not every one is sent out). You can donate to them any day in Maimo, iinm.
Who do you think you are fooling? You think you are going to pull a quick one on your Creator? Good luck with that.

The Hillel at Colombia is hosting a blood drive on 4/10. Part of Columbia University’s Spring Blood Drive Campaign.

From the looks of it that would be to the general Columbia Blood Bank
Just because things turned out a certain way doesn't mean you were right.

Correct.
Great cause but not sure if that is what he was looking for.

There's an organisation in CH called Ahavas Chessed they do blood drives periodically in conjunction with one of the local hospitals. The blood may very well go to non Jewish patients but that gives him a lot of pull in the hospital for the good of our community.

You know that this is a waaaaay more complicated issue than you make it sound, right?
You can say what you think when you think what you say.
