Liquid Love is an annual blood donation drive organised by the young adults of the Sathya Sai International Organisation of Australia. The Liquid Love campaign aims to inspire people to express their inherent love for all by making blood, plasma and platelet donations a regular part of their everyday lives. The drive was originally set from 23 November 2016 until 24 April 2017. Because the target set is exceeded, it has been decided to extend the drive until 7 May 2017 with the hope of extra donations and introducing more people to this wonderful life-giving service.
Are you between the ages of 16 and 70, and above 50 kg? If yes, then you are the perfect person to join in the beautiful service of Liquid Love.
In his 2004 discourse, Sathya Sai Baba proclaimed that, “Whenever there is a need for blood donation, you should come forward and donate” (SSS vol. 37, 1/1/2004). There is of course always a need, demonstrated by the fact that 1 in 3 Australians needs a blood transfusion at some point in their life, however only 1 in 30 donate (www.donateblood.com.au).
The donation drive began on 23 November 2016, Sai Baba’s birthday, and has now been extended until Sunday, 7 May 2017. The original target of 250 donations has already been passed, and so a more ambitious target of 1008 lives saved has been set (Red Cross calculates that each donation saves three lives on average and accordingly we need another 70 to 80 donations within 2 weeks).
The Fact Sheet available below provides information about the different ways you can donate blood or plasma, and information about the services.
