Did you know one blood donation can save up to three lives?
Just think about how many lives you could change...
Australian Red Cross Lifeblood (External link) needs more than 1800 people a day to donate blood in the next two weeks to prevent a shortage of blood products needed by patients this festive season.
This is a challenging time for blood supplies because the need for blood doesn’t stop over the holiday period, however fewer people are available to donate.
Donating blood (External link) takes 10 minutes, and Victoria has more than 400 donor centres.
