The average blood draw vial is about 10ml each. Some vials are smaller, some a bit larger.
When a person donates blood, they typically take a pint (480ml).
So when you give 10 vials you are giving about 100ml.
So an estimate for you 24 vials is 240ml or 1/2 pint.
People who are anemic might feel 240ml.
Blood volume in the body varies from big people 5+ liters (5000ml) to smaller people 3500 ml.

This is a power point that lists what these proteins do:
You need to stay hydrated, and eat well, after giving alot of blood.
All truths are easy to understand once they are discovered; the point is to discover them.-- Galileo Galilei
