Red Cross Legal Services Blood Challenge

 IT’S NOT TOO LATE TO GET ON BOARD AND SAVE SOME LIVES!

The Lifeblood Legal Services  Challenge started on 1 March and runs under their Lifeblood Teams program.

So far, 8 teams in Tasmania have saved 90 lives with Simmons Wolfhagen leading the TAS tally. Can we save 150 lives before the 31st May? What a great effort that would be from the Tasmanian legal community!

A special shout out to Bishops Barristers and Solicitors for bringing on 4 new donors and sitting third on the National new donor leaderboard.

Why get involved? 1 in 3 of us will need blood in our lifetime but only 1 in 30 people donate and every donation can impact 3 lives. That hour you spend donating could help patients across Australia in times of cancer treatment, trauma, major surgery, pregnancy and a host of other situations.

How to make your donations count:

  • Register your team – Remember it doesn’t matter whether you have 3 or 300 members, donating as individuals or as a group make every donation count by registering to a Lifeblood Team. You can START YOUR OWN TEAM by contacting Ann Harvey, TAS Group Account Manager on 0419887365 to setup a team or go to Register a Team.  
  • Join an existing team by simply asking when you donate or update your team preferences online. If you don’t want to start your own team, join the Law Society of Tasmania team!
  • Promote the Challenge – Want to organise a virtual or F2F info session about the importance of blood donation, have your questions answered and provide an opportunity for staff to sign up? Just contact Ann to organise.
  • Get EVERYONE involved – When you book your donation via the DonateBlood APP or online, encourage a team mate, friend or family member to join you!

We’ve already saved 90 lives…let’s make it 150 by 31st May! READY…SET…GIVE!
