Australia Red Cross - get more donations by changing YOUR policy!

0 have signed. Let’s get to 500!

There are  numerous requests that come across my various social media feeds from the Australian Red Cross Blood Service; however as an ex-pat of the UK, my blood along with thousands of others is not acceptable because of “mad cows disease”.

Whilst I realise there are other reasons why some people’s blood is not accepted the law of probability would state that a large percentage of potential UK donors would have “clean” blood.  Do not complain about something that your own policies are preventing  Australian Red Cross!

I could’ve donated 85 times since I arrived in Australia. Multiply that by the 1.1m UK immigrants in Australia (according to the ABS census 2016) and you’d solve your own problem and reduce your marketing budget substantially!!!

See sense Australian Red Cross...on behalf of our fellow citizens...please?
