MISCONCEPTIONS ABOUT DONATING BLOOD

You wont feel drained or tired if you continue to drink fluids and have a good meal.
You can resume your normal activities after donating blood, though you are asked to refrain from exercise or heavy weight lifting for twelve hours after donation.
Donating blood will not leave you low of blood; in fact you will still have surplus blood after the donation.
If you choose to consume alcohol, you can on the next day.
While donating blood you will not feel any pain.
You will not faint or feel uncomfortable after donating blood. This is a common misconception.
You will not get AIDS if you donate blood.
Patients are just like donors - most of them have common blood types. Because your blood type is common, the demand for that type is greater than for rare types. So, even if your blood type is common there is still a requirement.
Blood donors donate blood and do not sell it.

We need volunteers from every background and with all types of skills.
       If you have any ideas about how we can raise money through arranging various fund raising events, or whether you can help raise money through Corporate Sponsorship or even if you can help take part in any fund raising events for the project supported by us - blooddonorscouncil.com would like to hear from you.
"
       See yourself in others" seems to be a driving motivation and inspiration to our philanthropic way of life. To make our Appeals and on-going Project successful - we rely on volunteers to come forward and help us!
