Red Cross Blood Donations On The Rise

Red Cross Blood Donations On The Rise
 
 
Well done Toolooa – this year alone you have saved over 120 lives by giving up a small amount of your time and blood. 
 
Students and staff have taken on the Club Red challenge by donating blood (or plasma by staff) and Toolooa’s contribution to such a worthy cause has been welcomed by the wonderful staff at the Red Cross Blood service.
 
Only 1 in 30 donate blood but 1 in 3 people will need blood or blood products in their lifetime.  Students in year 7, 8, 9 or 10 can still support Toolooa by encouraging their parents to donate.  For those who have family members that donate they can also encourage them to join Club Red Toolooa team
(see Mrs Read for paperwork or use the link https://www.donateblood.com.au/who-can-give/club-red/join-group).
 
If you are 16 or older and wish to donate blood see one of the Red Cross Ambassadors (pictured below) or Mrs Read to collect the paperwork.
 
Keep up the live saving efforts Toolooa!!!
