I want to donate blood at my school this year, but I didn't weigh enough. How come there's a weight limit?

In brief: U must be scrawny.
Ask the person in charge of the donation, or your teacher the reason.
Maybe it's not just your weight. Check on line for 'criteria for donating blood'. You are clearly a good and generous kid if you want to donate blood. Thanks.
