I got my mom interested in registering too and so we both went to ask the information lady whether there is an age limit.
Info Lady: Are you interested in donating?I just thought to myself... "I don't think I look older than 50... but what part of me looks under 17???" Not that I'm offended if that was the case. In fact, that's a really nice compliment.
Mom: Yes, is there an age limit or restriction?
Info Lady: Oh yes, you have to be between 17 and 50 years old.
Mom: Oh, then I'm past that already.
*Info Lady turns to me*
Info Lady: Are you between 17 and 50 years old?
Are you the other half?

Anyway, my mom decided to donate by buying a T-shirt instead which is how I got this! It's in a size medium, but they say it will shrink. In the mean time, I guess it will just look really big and long on me -- goes well with leggings though :)
Sorry if this wasn't what you were expecting, I just thought it'd be nice to show off my new T-shirt!
