NZ Blood WBD 2011 330
I first gave blood some years ago when the service was put on for our office building in Auckland.
For me the giving of blood gives me the ability to help others who are less fortunate than me due to illness or injury. It is also a process I can repeat every three months and get as much blood as I can in the bank!

Having been involved in some road and work accidents you never know when your blood will be needed let alone the sheer amount of kids who are seriously ill and need all the help they can get.

The NZ Blood staff are friendly and helpful and the process almost painless so I challenge anyone who meets the criteria to get in and support this essential service as you never know when you, a loved one or friend will need this life saving service.
I will give blood for as long as there is a need for it and I also chase people around the office to encourage them to get on board with the process. You wont regret it and to think you have saved a life will put a smile on your face!
