Ran­gas feel the love

Townsville Bulletin - - NEWS -

SPERM donor col­lec­tion com­pa­nies are call­ing for more spec­i­mens from ginger- haired men.

Cur­rently only 2 per cent of donors are red­heads and more women are want­ing flame- haired chil­dren.

Whether it is the at­trac­tion to a prince like Harry or a mu­sic star such as Ed Sheeran, the tide has turned.

In 2011 one of the world’s largest sperm banks Cy­ros In­ter­na­tional shut the door on gin­gers be­cause there was not enough in­ter­est in hav­ing their off­spring.

But this week Co- Par­en­tMatch. com, an in­ter­na­tional net­work of sperm donors, has put out a call for fire­haired men in a bid to meet de­mand.

They are us­ing the hash­tag SaveGingers to draw at­ten­tion to their pro- ranga cam­paign.

“His­tor­i­cally red- headed donors have not been pop­u­lar but we are get­ting re­quests for pro­files of men with fiery hair,” said Carmel Car­ri­gan of Queens­land Fer­til­ity Group said.
