The Strangest Campaign To Get You To Donate Your Blood You Will Ever See

Donating blood is a pretty important thing that we can all do but at the same time it is something that we seem to have to be constantly reminded to do.

In the lead up to the 2012 Olympics the British NHA Blood and Transplant has launched what has to be one of the strangest and unique campaigns designed to get you to line up and donate some blood.

Jon Latham, spokesperson for NHS Blood and Transplant, said: “This year we have a unique situation and need the public’s help to counterbalance the inevitable dip in donations as people celebrate a memorable summer for the country. We need to adjust the mix of stocks so we are well prepared as a responsible host for these exciting events.”

About the Author

Steven has been around the tech world long enough to see most of the stuff we think of cool happen before which leads to a certain bit of cynicism that has contributed to him being known as the cranky old fart of the Internet. Besides sharing some of the goodness that he finds with you here at 42x you can also find him curating some digital goodness at Winextra (tech type stuff) and Rotten Gumdrops (for your daily dose of WTF).
