Stem Cell Donation - (Jan/13/2013 )

Where can I type me and donate stem cells?

usually there are several organizations. Which country ?

Uh?

Just check it with your local hospital or something.

From where are you?
In my country for example, you can list yourself as a donor. They then check everything (see if you are healthy etc) and then when they have a match with you that needs them, they will call you, give you the medicine etc.. and then you can donate.
They dont just take the cells when there is no one that can use them.. its not like giving blood.

Like pito said, you can ask at your local hospital / university clinic.
And as I mentioned, there are several organizations:
