A Noble Record

A Noble Record
SEATTLE - When you hear about a record in the Guinness Book of World Records, it's usually about something silly.

For instance, the record for the most number of people beating each other silly with big fluffy pillows. It's 700 if you need to know.

Or, the guy who's in the record books for putting the most miles on one car. His volvo has more than 2 million miles.

Like I said, it's the silly stuff that gets notoriety.

Enough of the silly stuff. Let's talk about substance!

How about a story about the man who's donated more blood than anyone else in the world?

That's the story I want to do.

Someone who gives back, someone who gives blood, and someone who is in the record books!

I found that person. His name is Robert Hungershafer and he's been donating blood since he was 18-years-old.

Robert is 46-years-old now.

No one has ever given more blood.

How do I know? Because he's in the Guinness Book of World Records for donating 528 units of blood. Each one of those units can save three people's lives.

When Robert gives blood he thinks about the people he will save.

"The aplastic anemia and leukemia patients," he explained, "It's so inspiring!"

Robert is thrilled to be in the record books, but Thursday he got an even greater honor. He was recognized as an incredible donor by the Puget Sound Blood Center.

He says it's not about the record - it's about the 30 years saving lives and those 528 units of blood.
