WHY SHOULD YOU DONATE BLOOD?
Blood is vital to human life
You can simply save not just one or two, but THREE lives!
It only takes about 30 minutes-1 hour of your time, and it's totally safe!
What's your blood type?
For those who don't know, you can find out after you donate.


Keep this in mind: Every three seconds, there is someone out there who needs a blood transfusion.
What happens afterwards?
Grab yourself a snack, refreshment, T-shirt, and enjoy the rest of your day with a feeling of accomplishment for helping rescue precious lives!
Although some people may be a bit fearful to donate blood in the beginning, just think about putting yourself in the other person's shoes who's actually in dire need of blood to live his/her daily life
