You Can't Get Blood Out of a Stone

As a long time plasma and platelets donor, I have set up a Red25 group called "You Can't Get Blood Out of a Stone". 

What is Red25?
Red25 is the name of the group donation program facilitated by the Australian Red Cross Blood Service.

The Australian Red Cross Blood Service is confident that 100% of required donations will be met by the Australian community, however they’re asking that 25% of these come from groups like this one, making Red25 and its members the core contributors of Australia’s blood supply. More specifically, making Red25’s members part of one of the most important Corporate Social Responsibility brands in Australia.
