Message from Lifeblood



So much has changed in the past few months. But you know what hasn’t changed? The need for blood.
Make this year different for a good reason by giving life.

Australia still needs 29,000 donations every week, and many regular donors can’t help right now.

So, what can you do?

Can’t donate right now? Help make this year different for a good reason by sharing Lifeblood’s posts on social media, and spreading the word to friends and family.
We truly appreciate whatever you can do to help.

Our donor centres are safe places.
Your safety is Lifeblood’s top priority. We don’t let anyone donate if they’re unwell and our donor centres are sanitised and safe. Learn more about the extra measures we’re taking to ensure the health and wellbeing of our donors here.

Thank you for your support. Together, we’re Australia’s Lifeblood.
