A few days ago, we got a pamphlet when we went shopping at Boulevard here in Kuching. (When I say “we” I really mean my family ‘cos I wasn’t there actually. LOL!)
Anyways, it was a blood donation campaign pamphlet…You know, those pamphlets where they inform you there is a blood donation drive happening at so-and-so on so-and-so?
Not interested you say?
Lemme just draw your attention (especially if you are in KUCHING) to the following…
5 reasons why you should donate blood (and pay close attention to Reason #5):
#1. It’s healthy (Me thinks?)
#2. It’s you “giving back” to the community
#3. You are helping others
#4. You’ll know your blood type!
Honestly, a show of hands, how many of you actually KNOW what’s your blood type huh?
#5 You get a FREE sack of rice!!!
Yup, you read it correctly…
According to that pamphlet, they will give EACH donor a sack of rice. Blood for Money…Barter Trade?
Call it what you will but with the high price of rice now, that campaign sure sounds appealing, no? It’s a WIN-WIN situation…
Say, for example, a family of 4 (Father, Mother and 2 teenage boys) consumes 2 sacks of rice a month.
If all 4 donate blood, they get 4 sacks of rice for FREE! That is equal to 2 months supply of rice!!! Tempting or not? Hehehe…
Well, that’s happening this 6th of July at the Boulevard, Kuching…so if you’re in Kuching – what are you waiting for???
And if you’re NOT in Kuching – maybe you should be!!! LOL!
Personally, I have always had the intention of donating blood (primarily to know my blood type – Yup, I don’t know!!!)…that means the Rice has nothing to do with it…but I never got round to doing it as the HUGE needles they use freaks me out! :(
This picture is enough to make me FLICH!!!! *faints*
So…if you don’t have such problem, amd you are eligible (old enough, healthy enough) to donate, by all means…do go…
A pint of your blood could save hundreds of lives (according to what I read on the pamphlet)…
So yeah…see you there!
Heck, I don’t even know where the pamphlet is already…so what does that tell you?
Anyways, Mom went back home tonight…so life is back to normal again at the casa…
…except now there are 3 adults and a baby…hehehe…
