Thanking you in advance for your willingness to help for a great cause,

P.S.: Here is some more additional information about Blood Donation.
Someone needs blood every two seconds. One donation can save up to three lives. That is powerful.Donating blood may be one of the most important things you've ever done. It is a safe and easy process which takes approximately 45 minutes (Actual blood drawing only takes 10 min). Generally, anyone aged 16 or older (16 year old donors require parental consent), weighing at least 110 pounds and in good health, can donate blood. There is an eight-week (56 day) waiting period between donations.

We understand you are extremely busy. One out of five people who enter a hospital will need a blood transfusion. Blood donation is the act of giving life. Although the whole process can take up to an hour of your time, it can provide an entire lifetime for a local patient.

If you are healthy and weigh at least 110 pounds, you have 10-12 pints in your body and can easily spare one pint. You should be able to donate regularly every eight weeks without any problem. The fluids in your body are completely replaced 24 hours after donation.

Donate blood and enjoy the feeling of accomplishment knowing that you have helped save lives.

TANA South East Team.
