Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh

Anyone who know if it's allowed to donate blood when you are a Sikh.. what does Sikhism say about it?

I m sorry, i m not "learned" enough to say anything on behalf of religion.. but personally, i admire this act.. and request you to go ahead.if got a chance ...its a noble work..
