Currently in Australia 1 in 3 people need blood. This is their only lifeline however we only have enough blood to meet requirements for a week. In a disaster we would not have the stores of blood needed to meet requirements.
This chilling fact is why I implore you to make a difference and donate your time and blood at an Australian Red Cross donation centre. You can check out their website for locations.
I am very lucky to have the "blood van" as its called come to the university every session. This makes donating simple and I don't have to make any great effort. But I understand this isn't the case for most people.
I have also gone on my own to donate my plasma at one of the donation centres. So I appreciate that going out of the way to donate isn't convenient for some people.
I just always think that what if I needed blood and the supplies weren't there!
So please help to make a difference and increase our stores of blood by donating today.
Have an uplifting day
