Whether you’re AB+ or O-, we need your blood.
- Blood saves lives.
Every unit of blood donated can be separated into its constituent parts and used to enhance the lives of up to four recipients.
- There’s no substitute.
Unfortunately, there is no known substitute for blood and it cannot be replicated due to its complexity. Only real blood will do.
- Blood is in short supply.
Because the need for blood is so unpredictable, we’re always one day away from running out. While 75% of our population are potential recipients, less than 1.2% are donors, and only approximately 16,000 donors give blood more than four times a year.
- It's a good cause.
Giving doesn’t get much better than this.
- You could be next.
It's not a nice thing to consider, but the fact is that you, a close friend, or a family member could well be the next car accident victim or surgery candidate requiring a transfusion. Wouldn’t it be good to know that our stock levels are adequate?
- The process is safe and quick.
We use sterile, disposable equipment, so there’s no risk of infection. The entire process takes just 20 minutes, after which you can resume your daily activities. And finally, you won’t even miss the one unit (475 ml) of blood donated. It is quickly replaced by your body.
