Anyone every do a round robin transfusion schedule?

I don't know if that's the right term or not. It's when, say you have to get blood every other week. You incorporate six if your friends,they donate every eight weeks, and you get only their blood. My math might be wrong, my head hurts, but do you understand what I'm trying to say?

I don't think that the blood supply is of much concern here in the US, but I know in other countries it could be. And some people are just naturally more cautious than others.

Anyway, I was just curious.
