This Valentine’s Day, the New Zealand Blood Service is inviting people to find out if they are the
perfect match for someone other than their partner – someone in need of donated blood. “In addition to being your partner’s ‘type’, you may
also be the perfect match for someone in need of donated blood,” says Paul Hayes, NZ Blood Service. “All donated blood is precious, but each blood type has its own special set of qualities that mean it may be able to be used in specialist treatments or to
make blood-derived medicines.”
To make an appointment to donate with your partner or friends for Valentine’s Day, phone 0800 GIVE BLOOD.
