Together, we can make a difference.

Every day, countless recipients across Australia require blood and blood products, and we’re so grateful for a  community of over half a million active donors who give life. This National Blood Donor Week, we’re celebrating these generous life-savers and we’d love for you to join us . Donate blood from 10 June to 14 July and show your support with a limited-edition bandage designed by Indigenous Australian artist, Aretha Brown.
