The Australian Red Cross is urgently calling Lifeline to donate blood in the next two weeks, so now is your chance to do well for the year.
Lifeblood urgently attracts at least 16,000 donors to donate blood and / or plasma in the next two weeks as supplies drop to their lowest levels.
All blood is required, so if * you * can * donate (obviously some people can’t) then you should consider it. But blood O and A (also known as the more common types) are particularly low, with the blood lowering to less than two days..
As expected, the two days don’t have a lot of blood, especially for the more common types.
Lifeblood CEO Cath Stone has raised the alarm, noting that she has seen more cancellations and a fall in appointments in recent months..
« As restrictions continue to be eased across the country, it is imperative to continue donating blood and plasma, » said Ms. Stone..
“We have seen the best in society throughout the pandemic as donors continue to arrive, however this latest trend of reducing appointments and increasing cancellations is causing concern..
I followed this up by thanking those who had already donated, and urging those who may not know their blood type to donate regardless.. .
“We want to thank everyone who has continued to advance and donate during COVID-19. However, the need for blood and blood products never stops, so we urge those who can make donating blood or plasma part of their « new normal ». .
« Even if you don’t know your blood type, we still need you – we need all blood types every day.
If you are keen to donate some blood, you can book via Lifeline. Com. au call 13 14 95, or download the Donate Blood app, because it’s 2020 and there’s a real app for everything.
Come on, make the gift of blood at Christmas (but actually the next two weeks because it’s so urgent).
