He is how To Donate Blood

To ensure the safety of blood donation for donors and recipients, all blood donors must be evaluated to determine eligibility.
Blood Donors Must:
Be In Good General Health meaning you feel well and you can perform normal activities

Be at least 17 years old in most states or 16 years old with parental consent if allowed by state law
Weight at least 110 lbs. Additional weight requirements apply for donors 18 years old and younger and all high school donors

Other aspects of each potential donor’s health history are discussed as part of the donation process before any blood is collected.

Each donor receives a brief examination during which temperature, pulse, blood pressure and hemoglobin (or hematocrit) are measured.

Making donations for your own use during surgery (autologous blood donation) is considered a medical procedure that requires a written prescription and the rules for eligibility are less strict than for regular volunteer donations.
