Our AT Life Blood team
Active Truth is part of the Lifeblood Teams program, where organisations and likeminded people unite to save lives. We love seeing the impact that our team is having on the blood supply in Australia. They even send you a text message telling you when and where your donation is being used.
It only takes an hour to give blood, but it could change someone’s life.
Today I visited my local donation centre at Chermside in Brisbane. As always the friendly staff and volunteers make you feel welcome and constantly remind you that you are doing something really special. Did you know that every donation can help save three lives? I mixed things up today and donated plasma. And its something that I am able to do fortnightly. It didn’t take long, I read a book, the snacks are always on point and I left knowing I did something good.
People from all walks of life need blood products. Some like my mother needed it to get her through cancer treatment, or like my girlfriend a difficult pregnancy. Others have medical conditions which means they need blood products regularly just to say alive or be healthy.
To join our Active Truth Life Blood team and help us save lives see the instructions below. For every person that joins our AT Life Blood team and donates for the rest of 2020 I will send you a $50 Active Truth voucher. You just need to donate, share your photograph/story on social media and use the hashtag #ATLifeBloodteam. Then screenshot the post/story and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
