I've switched to donating platelets, I think? I'm AB+. I moved at the end of last summer, and after my first donation at my new home I got a call from the Red Cross asking if I could come and specifically donate platelets, since AB+ is the universal donor for that (and plasma). Since then I've given platelets twice. Unfortunately, donating platelets takes a couple hours, plus about 30 minutes each way to the donation site, so it's a little tricky to arrange on my end. I'm up to around 14 pints of blood--I really should keep better track.
