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…
