I’ve just finished reading the topic “Organ donor forms now to go with licence renewals”, and it got me thinking about why so many people don’t donate blood? I’ve always been a keen blood donor, but since I have been overseas for about 5 years, I can’t donate for about 12 months.
The Red Cross have been screaming out forever about the need for blood, and often I think people don’t even consider it, until someone they know is in an accident, or worse – and need some of the precious red stuff. Somehow I think if the Red Cross handed out coin (like they do in the US), there would be plenty more donors. This is sad really!
Get out there and start saving lives Canberra – and I’m interested to hear why so many Canberrans don’t donate.
