You may have heard that thereâ€™s a new approach to donating blood.Â All donors â€“ new and current â€“ are encouraged to donate PLASMA.
PLASMA is the liquid component that forms the majority of your blood.Â Itâ€™s what your red blood cells float in, and itâ€™s loaded with thousands of proteins and nutrients that are vital to the way our bodies function.Â When donated, PLASMA can be used to create 18 different life-saving medical treatments, helping people suffering from cancer and leukaemia, brain and nerve disease, immune deficiencies and many more health conditions.
Currently Australiaâ€™s demand for PLASMA is at an all-time high, which is why the Australian Red Cross Blood Service is calling upon local business, sporting and community groups to join Red25.Â Red25â€™s ambitious goal is to unite organisations across Australia to donate 25 per cent of the 1 million-plus donations needed every year.Â Quite simply, by working together, we can save more lives!
