Vampires: You need to give blood

Because I am!
Due to time, money and just life, I have been finding it really hard to tick things off the Life List.
It has really been quite frustrating.

However I am happy that one thing I can tick off quite regularly is #82: Donate Blood.

I have done this 3 times this year, and I find it a relatively painless, easy and such a rewarding thing to do.

According to the Australian Red Cross...

"Blood is vital to life and for many people blood donors are their lifeline. Currently only 1in 30 people give blood, but 1in 3 people will need blood in their lifetime.

Modern processing techniques mean that a single blood donation, when separated into its components, can help at least 3 different patients and contribute to making up to 22 different products (including potentially life-saving immunisations for chicken pox, hepatitis B and tetanus)".

Given the holiday season is fast approaching, donating blood could help you or your loved ones.

So please give your local blood bank a call and give blood.

If you are in Australia, contact the Red Cross Blood Service
