In brief: Universal donor

The advantage is that you are a universal donor- which means you can donate your blood and the blood can be used and be given to people with different type of blood group.
Which means you can do a lot of good karma. The disadvantage is that if you ever need packed red blood cell transfusion-you should only get a type o blood, which unfortunately -is not very common.

In brief: Blood groups

Blood gr o+ can be a donor to all other groups whereas, if you need blood, you can only get o group blood, which is scarce.
