Blood donors needed

I’m re-publishing something I have received from Sree Swaminarayan mandirn Kingsbury, because it is pretty important. So, as follows…

London, Brent, June 2015: With 40% fewer new blood donors than 10 year ago, The Mayor of Brent Cllr Lesley Jones with Shree Swaminarayan Mandir Kingsbury, launched a new drive urging residents across the borough to help fill the gap.

In advance of National Blood Week (8-14 June), local representatives from NHS Blood and Transplant came together with regular local donors and members from world-renowned, Shree Muktajeevan Swamibapa Pipe Band to unveil the Missing Type campaign. The campaign removes the letters A, O and B (the letters that make up the blood groups) to highlight the need for new blood donors with all blood types.

Our global spiritual leader Acharya Swamishree Maharaj promotes selfless giving as a primary duty for all people. He has campaigned all over the world for people to donate blood and sign up to organ donor registers. He has not only dispelled myths and taboos about donating blood and organs amongst the Hindu community, but has explained that it is one’s obligation to do so if you can.

On World Blood Donor Day, Sunday 14 June, we aim to hold their biggest and most successful blood donation session ever together with our brothers and sisters from around the globe, including Kenya and the United States, who will also be holding sessions to support this important cause.

Do something amazing. Book your appointment now!
