2021 Blood Challenge

LTSA has collaborated with Australian Red Cross to launch our inaugural LTSA Clubs & Societies Blood Challenge!

This important initiative serves to bring awareness and promote blood donation among our students at LTU. Blood donation helps save lives by treating accident victims, cancer patients, pregnant women and patients dealing with other medical conditions that need blood products.

All LTSA Clubs & Societies (Metro & Regional) are taking part in this challenge. From 1st August to 30th September, you will be competing with clubs & societies to see who can help save most lives! We have registered all LTSA affiliated clubs & societies as teams.

Who can take part in the challenge?
Executives, club members, volunteers, staff and even your family members can donate blood and make their donations count towards your club or society.

Where can I donate?
Book an appointment using one of the following options:
• Online: www.donateblood.com.au/lifeblood-teams/join
• Phone: 13 14 95
• Via the app: Donate Blood
• In Centre: Ask the donor staff at the reception to sign you up.

How does my donation count towards my club's tally?
You can join your team either by logging into your account online or via the Donate blood app (under preferences and then Lifeblood teams), on the phone while booking an appointment, or at the reception during your appointment. Once joining the team, all the members' donations between 1st August – 30th September will count towards your club.

What is the benefit of taking part in this challenge?
• Promote & raise awareness of the importance and use of blood donations.
• Help save lives.
• We will shoutout with two free coffee vouchers to individuals who share their photos on socials (Facebook & Instagram) tag us on FB and insta (@latrobestudentassociation) and use the following hashtags: #LTSAbloodchallenge #lifebloodau #makingstudentlifebetter
• Participation certificate forthe club from both LTSA and Australian Red Cross.
• Shout out your club on our website and socials.

Roll up your sleeve and be a bloody legend!
