G is for Give Blood

I spend much of my day asking people to do this, or trying to come up with new and inspiring ways to ask people to do this.

I am so proud to play a part in helping save lives, both professionally and as a donor.

The facts are that 1 in 3 of us will need a blood transfusion in our lifetime, but only 1 in 30 of us donates. Scary huh?

Only 6% of our population are blood donors. It’s a very exclusive lifesaving club! But this means that 94% are relying on someone else to do something incredible.

I am so lucky to get to meet patients and their families who wouldn’t be here without the kindness and generosity of strangers, taking time out of their day to help someone they will never meet. These people are alive because of someone like you. And it won’t cost you anything other than your time.

Do it. Give Blood.
