Discrimination is when an individual is being denied the same inalienable rights that every other citizen is privy to. I have been completely denied any service or help from this donation center. Only single reason is because i have a sleeve tattoo on one arm. No other reason, except if i had another tattoo within a year after donating i cnt donate. So i said of i donate this once and do not return, then its guaranteed im not donating after a new tattoo... The reply i received was if i didnt come back i would mot be profitable to them! Im a single father struggling. Im sure a needy person could use my donation to possibly save a life. Apparently, donating single parents who have sleeve tattoos are not profitable. Defeats the purpose of helping others and needing help yourself. Sign should read....anyone welcome, unless u have tattoos and wont be profitable enough....I have been humiliated and discriminated against by so-called professionals.

First and foremost, we would like to apologize that you felt discriminated by our center. Nevertheless, our staff followed FDA regulations regarding tattoos. We are regretful that you were unable to meet this criteria. However, we value each of our donors that assist us in our continuous effort to save lives.
