Acorn Childcare is running a blood drive for the months of October through to the end of December. The idea is to raise awareness about the dire need for donors. Did you know that 1 in 3 Australians will need blood donations? Yet just 3 percent of Australians give blood, 25 000 donations are needed each week. That’s quite a number to fill!!
We are currently running a little healthy competition between the centres to see which centre can raise the most blood donations. We have kick started the drive with some of the friendly staff of Acorn East donating blood on Wednesday the 4th of October and also having a visit from the Red Cross mascot Billy Blood Drop.
For every donation received three lives can be saved, why not choose to give the gift of LIFE this Christmas and make a huge difference in the lives of so many people in need as well as their families. Which as we know coming up to the holiday season is the most important thing.
