Celebrating bloody legends

National Blood Donor Week 11–17 June

During National Blood Donor Week 2017, we’re celebrating Australia’s true ‘bloody legends’: blood donors.

Australia has nearly half a million generous volunteer blood donors. Last year, they gave an incredible 1.3 million donations. As each donation has the potential to save three lives, that’s up to 4 million lives saved.

Thank you for your gift.

You’ve changed the lives of people like Emily, who needed blood after giving birth to both of her daughters.

Status: legendary

Australia needs more bloody legends! There’s no better time to encourage your friends and family to give donating blood a go than during National Blood Donor Week.

Simply download and share one of the images below on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram to make your status legendary.
