Border residents are being asked to participate in Australia’s Biggest Secret Santa by giving blood and plasma to help save lives this festive season.
Australian Red Cross Blood Service spokeswoman Cathy Chapman said 60 blood donors were needed next week alone.
While 50 plasma donors are needed between December 24 and January 2.
“If Secret Santa is about giving anonymous gifts, designed to make someone’s day, then blood donation really is Australia’s ultimate Secret Santa exchange,” she said.
“Your blood donation will be the ultimate gift to Australian patients this Christmas – and will have a far reaching impact on the lives you save, and the lives of their loved ones.
