Eat a lot: You must weight at least 110 lbs for the am. Red cross to allow you to donate. Most peoples' weight fluctuates by a few pounds day to day, so you may qualify after big meal(s) and plenty of fluids. You will be one pound lighter when you are done donating! good luck and thank you for your efforts to donate!
