With 2012 peeping over the horizon, now is the perfect time to leave 2011 on a positive note. I know at times I harp on about donating blood, but when you see a picture of a five year old girl who would have died without a blood transfusion, it becomes a topic that is worth harping on about.
I was at the blood bank yesterday and there were not a lot of people donating. January is a big demand month for blood and blood products so even though stocks are good at the moment, they fall very quickly. People who require regular transfusions don’t stop needing blood over the Christmas break.
So why not do something really positive for your fellow human beings, call the Blood Bank (in Australia) on 13 14 95 and give up an hour of your time and a few drops of your precious blood and save some lives? I few weeks back I blogged about taking a “Blood Buddy” with you – I am sure the Blood Bank’s around Australia would be very happy to see you and a friend.
