I know that O+ is especially in need, I got O+, I’m not doing anything with it, might as well right,” Olsen said, “As a college student, I can’t always donate money to causes I like, I don’t always have time to go volunteer, so for this, I can come in for a couple of minutes. It’s something I can do to be helpful that doesn’t take a lot of my time or cost anything cause it’s free so, why not.”
