Transcript of Persuasive Speech: Donating Blood

Donating Blood Benefits and Incentives
1997 World Health Organization set a goal
All blood donations come from unpaid volunteers
Only 49 of 124 countries surveyed maintained this standard Some countries have made great strides such as Tanzania
20% volunteer donors in 2005 and then 80% unpaid donors in 2007
However many countries still rely on paid donors in order to maintain an adequate supply
In some countries it is illegal to receive any compensation (monetary or otherwise)
Argentina, Brazil and Australia for example Regular donors are still recognized for their efforts
Time off work is often a bonus incentive
In Italy the donation day is treated as a paid holiday
Donating blood may also reduce the risk of heart disease in men but the link has not been confirmed and may be a selection bias Other Incentives Assurances; Donors will have priority during blood shortages

Less than 10% of of the population actually donates blood. They say they're afraid of AIDS, needles, blood or that they're too busy. But sometimes you got to look at the big picture. You are potentially saving someone's life and helping the community out. There are many reasons to donate blood... health benefits- lower your cholesterol and get a mini-physical, you can get compensated... with money or other things, but most importantly it's among the most selfless things a human being can do. So be part of something bigger than yourself and donate blood.
