  Original Published: 7/16/2013  One-hundred gallons of blood can save a lot of lives, that's why Bill Waerzeggars did just that.   The Green Bay, Wisconsin resident began donating in 1970, and on Friday donated his latest pint, bringing his lifetime total to 100 gallons.    Bill's blood type is O-negative, which means anyone can take his blood.   Every two weeks, he makes a donation of platelets too.   The American Red Cross says 38 percent of people are eligible to donate blood.   However, only eight percent actually do.
