Red Cross Blood Service
A big thank you and congratulations to all the students who donated blood this week at the Griffith University Red Cross Mobile Donor Centre. The Australian Red Cross Blood Service plays an essential role in collecting blood from the Australian community with the help of 27,000 blood donors each week.
After many weeks of planning, we had eight students donate with ten more students donating in the following week. Thank you to all the student donors for giving up their time and effort, and we encourage more people to get involved with one in every three people needing a blood transfusion in their lifetime.
“I was really nervous about donating blood for the first time, but it wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be. Thanks to Natalie and Talan for being with us the whole time! I’ll definitely donate again.” – Amy Zhou
