A blood campaign that’s looking for A+ response

The National Blood Service in London held a street event to highlight the need to stock up on blood ahead of the Olympic Games.  With an estimated 1.2 million people and 15,000 athletes anticipated to visit London, they expect increased demands on stocks while donations during this period are predicted to drop.

Lessons to learn

The School Book Bank promotes the reuse of school books by receiving and delivering used school books for free.

This avoids incurring any delivery expenses.
