Get a group together to donate

This is another one you can do whether or not you are a blood donor. Gather your eligible mates, workmates, neighbours or family and help them into a regular donating schedule by registering a Lifeblood Team.

Your group can span suburbs or states, every donation made in that group’s name counts toward your lifesaving tally. Surely the best ‘dream team’.
