Knowing your type helps us to fill the gaps

There are 27,000 reasons why it’s important to know your blood type. That’s the number of people whose lives are saved and improved by blood donations in New Zealand every year.
We must collect 3,400 donations every week. Knowing your blood type is the first step on the journey to becoming a blood donor.
If you don't know your blood type, there is a good chance you can help. Find a blood typing event near you or book an appointment today.
If you already know your blood type, that’s awesome!  Please don’t be the silent type, book an appointment today and help save a life

HOW TO TAKE PART IN THE MISSING TYPE CAMPAIGN

Every year we need over 20,000 new donors to join the donor registry, and we need all the help we can get to encourage more New Zealanders to become blood donors. Whether you are a business, charity or individual it’s as easy as losing your As and Os to get involved in this exciting campaign.  Help us spread the word about the importance of blood donation.
