There is a very creative slogan which shown in a pesticide advertisement in our local newspapers for me to share with yours. " Let's donate our blood to the National Blood Bank, NOT the mosquitoes. " ha! ha! ha! What will be your first impression and your feedback to this slogan. For me, it will remind me to participate the blood donation campaign and not buying the pesticide products.

Pretty catchy indeed. Although my blood type is not accepted. I have tried in the past but apparently my rho gram negative blood type is not widely accepted.

You are so unlucky for not being so popular in your blood. May be your blood is popular to most of the mosquitoes. ha! ha! ha!

That slogan sounds really funny I would remember it for long time, because it's really impressive. In my past i was often in the blood centers, every 6 months because this is the period when our blood restore it's quality. First giving was when i was 22 and i had to give blood for the surgery of my aunt. She was not with the same blood type as me, she was 0- and i am AB+, but they still wanted us to give blood so they can fill the emptiness in their banks with different types of blood. After that donation i felt really great, lost some kilograms and started to feel much better. Everywhere is written that giving blood is something good, not only because we help to someone we don't know, but because our blood restores with much better quality after that. I had around 6 donations, every 6 months after the first time. I was so motivated to help the others. But once i stopped giving blood is when i hear that there is a blood mafia in our country. They take it as donations and sell some of the more rare types, as 0 which is universal and can be used with everyone and my own AB as i read is little rare too, so i stopped donating. There is no sense for me to do it, if i can't help someone.

Great to hear that you are one of the regular blood donors. At my place, I have heard about it too. But mostly it was happened in the government hospital. The staffs of the hospital were trying to sell the blood to the patients. I guess there are no such illegal activities anymore because all of the donated blood will send to the center to screen and to ensure it is free of HIV before distributing to the whole country. I just hope this slogan can be widely used to attract more blood donors.

Here they don't sell blood to the patients who need that blood for surgery or something like that, but they ask if you need surgery or like that, to bring more people, who will give blood instead of the blood they will use for your surgery.

What a catchy slogan. We are all reminded of what we could do to help other people who are in need of blood. I also have an experience with a blood bank that I saw when I was going to work. Besides blood it was also asking for financial donations. Their was a big metal bin where you could drop your money and there was a sign painted on it. It read 'Dracula' Bank'.

In my country, the blood bank is set up and manage by the Malaysia government. Normally, many non-government organization will help the National blood bank to recruit donors for blood donation during the campaign. Those non-government organization will contribute some food and healthy drink to the blood donors on the spot. Here, they seldom ask for the donation of money.

When you said food and drinks now i reminded myself that here they give the same. They also can pay if you are recorded in their lists for regular blood giver, if you are not, they i've you box with melted chocolate and some waffles and little package of natural juice - everything donated them by whom i don't know.

That is a very creative slogan since they need the blood and there are many cases of Dengue Fever. It is better to donate the blood to the blood bank rather than donate it to the mosquitoes.

Good to show this slogan here to activate more blood donors to participate the blood donation campaign.
