The Hungarian Red Cross and the Hungarian National Blood Transfusion Service considers the organization of the smooth blood supply as their major task, which is even harder in the summer months. Many regular blood donors travel and because of the holidays, the number of volunteers is decreasing, although 1600-1800 blood donors would be necessary every day.
The Hungarian Red Cross and the Hungarian National Blood Transfusion Service calls the attention to providing assistance with a summer promotion campaign called “For you it’s an hour, for three people it means life”, which lasts from 1 July to 1 September.
Those who donate blood receive a personal thank-you card with a unique code. If someone uploads the code to the www.voroskereszt.hu/veradasnyar website, they have the chance to win valuable weekly prizes and if they also share the fact on Facebook that they have donated blood, they can participate in two draws at the same time. At the end of the campaign, the donors can win further prizes as well.
The colleagues of the Hungarian Red Cross and the Hungarian National Blood Transfusion Service will be present at various events during the summer, among others at the EFOTT festival, the Művészetek Völgye (Valley of Arts), and the FEZEN festival.
