Giving a little to save lives…

Giving more for us means helping, honouring and giving back to others – getting alongside them and growing and nurturing symbiotic relationships so that everyone wins. One of the causes we believe is very much deserving is the New Zealand Blood Service – and we can all simply do our bit to get alongside them!

It’s not every day you can do something to save someone’s life… but that’s exactly what you do every time you donate blood. Blood is a priceless gift – a lifesaver. Patients in NZ hospitals need about 3,000 blood donations every week. Blood can’t be manufactured and it can’t be replaced by animal blood. Yet statistics show that less than 4% of all possible donors in New Zealand actually roll their sleeves up and give each year. Every single donation of blood (which can be given every 3 months) can help save the lives of up to 3 people!!!

We’ve teamed up with the New Zealand Blood Service and Team Red to track our blood donations as a collective business. Team Red gives people an opportunity to get together with their friends and workmates to donate blood to those in need – we think there’s no better way to give more!

What a great job the NZBS do to contribute to saving lives each and every day. We can all do our bit too… if you’re willing and able, grab a friend and head on down! ?
