BLOOD DONA­TION DRIVE MBO CIN­E­MAS (na­tion­wide) Web­site: www.mbocin­e­mas.com Tel: (03) 2380 5988 TO­MOR­ROW TILL SUN­DAY:

MBO Cin­e­mas is once again join­ing hands with St John’s Am­bu­lance Malaysia and the Na­tional Blood Bank for its an­nual blood dona­tion cam­paign.

On av­er­age, hos­pi­tals in Malaysia need to pre­pare around 2,000 bags of blood to sup­port the needs of 1,000 pa­tients per day. So why not do­nate blood af­ter/ be­fore watch­ing a movie.

MBO will pro­vide each donor with an ex­clu­sive goodie bag which has movie vouch­ers, snacks and a va­ri­ety of vouch­ers from spon­sors.

The cam­paign will be held on Satur­day and Sun­day in all states, ex­cept Kedah and Jo­hor, where it will be held to­mor­row and on Satur­day. Time: Noon-6pm.
