Red Cross Blood Service – Encouraging Generation Y to donate blood

By June 20, 2010July 7th, 2010No Comments

This morning I visited the Red Cross Blood Service, located in Charter Street Ringwood to meet Jacob Fry, a blood donor recipient who was able to survive a serious car accident surgery due to blood donations.  Jacob attended the Ringwood Red Cross Blood Service to encourage people, particularly younger community members, to donate blood through explaining how blood donations gave him the chance to survive surgery.

Jacob’s story is truly inspirational and demonstrates how blood donations can provide the gift of life for people in serious conditions.  The Ringwood Red Cross Blood Service is located 32-38 Charter Street in Ringwood, for further information please visit http://giveblood.redcross.org.au
