The blood is very valuable. Why not do as all markets do, and pay for the supply? The hospitals are not donating the blood to their patients, so why should the hospitals get the blood for free? Personally, I gave about a gallon, saw some of my friends get hepatitis, and quit giving. For a fee, I might resume. The fee would not have to be cash. It could be a FMV receipt that could be the basis for a tax donation. The Fair Market Value might be $150, $200, or more per pint, depending, as you say, on the scarcity of the type donated.
