world blood donor day

By Alison Campbell 14/06/2010

Today (June 14) is World Blood Donor Day. Blood’s not a product that keeps particularly well (about a month, if we’re talking whole blood) & blood banks are always looking for new donors. In New Zealand, around 3,000 donations per week are needed in order to meet the demand.

So, if you’re been considering giving blood, put the thought into action & rock on down to your nearest NZ Blood Service centre. Giving blood’s a straightforward process & can make a profound difference to the lives of others.
