Every now and then I do my bit and post what would probably be called a public service announcement. So today I'm serving my public. This is the time of year when a lot of South African's are starting to go away on their annual summer holidays which means that a lot of regular blood donars tend to skip a donation because they aren't home or is too busy to donate. This leads to a situation where the South African National Blood Service runs very low on stock at a time when blood could potentially be in big demand due to the influx of visitors and the possibility of more accidents happening. I donated blood for the 47th time last week (three more for my half century) and noticed the SANBS' summer blood campaign poster. "Give someone a bloody good festive season" You gotta love the word play in that one.
