Hey Adelaide friends, ever thought about donating blood to the Red Cross? But transport and car parking was a barrier? 🏥
Did you know, you can register and book appointments online and if you have an appointment in the donor centre in Regent Arcade, Adelaide City Council Upark gives you free car parking. Winning! 🚗
Lastly, please wear a condom when having sex with Tinder strangers because the nice people at Red Cross will ask you “have you had at-risk sexual behaviour” in the last 12 months? Erm… How awkward! 🤦🏻♂️
Having worked in tertiary burns units myself, you realise how quickly burns victims go through bags of blood.
Edit: thanks for awarding this post a “first post wonder” badge. I hope that amongst all the controversy around the eligibility to donate, some of you actually donate and get free parking.
Edit 2: I can confirm that when you are done they give you a 3hr ($20) voucher that you use to pay for your ticket. I was done in 1hr giving whole blood. I then went next door and bought Manchester at 50% off at Harris Scarfe closing down sale. I then had more than an hour left spare!
