You.

Yeah you, reading this right now. I just wanna tell you that you look pretty good and are somebody’s type.

I also want to tell you, that by just spending 60 minutes, you basically saved more lives than most main characters in a single movie.

Yeah. 60 minutes and you save 3 lives.

You can do that by simply donating blood.

WAIT DON’T GO YET. There are more reasons why you should donate blood.

The food they give is the best

As a food reviewer, a criterion I always take into account for evaluating food is the price. And you can’t beat the value of free. That basically means if I have to review it, it’s not just 5/5.

You can’t divide by 0. It’s like, infinite/5, man.

And really, a hospital in Australia agrees.

Actual examples of food you will receive:

And you might be disappointed that we don’t actually serve cookies like Australia, but we have something better; Milo.

It’s like, chilling and taking a massage

You’re basically a hero. And you know what heroes get? Special treatment.

You get to sit on a comfortable chair and get treated like a king. Feeling cold? Tell someone and you quickly get a warm drink plus a blanket.

And you get to watch movies while laughing at the main characters that you’re doing so much more with less effort.

Just make sure you’ve downloaded the movie in Netflix.

A 34YO "old-virgin" S'porean was desperately looking for a boyfriend and surprisingly, she really found one online. But the intentions of the man will make you cry. Prepare tissue paper to watch this video based on real events:

Free medical checkup

Blood really can’t be used without knowing how healthy the donor is and what it can be used for. So you bet nurses and doctors will analyse whatever you give, so they don’t randomly give diseases to patients instead.

They’ll check your body temperature, blood pressure, haemoglobin and pulse. You’ll also be tested for infectious diseases. Did I also say it’s free?

And are you an Iron Man? They’ll also check if you’re Iron Man.

(P.S. if it’s not obvious enough, they check your blood for enough iron lah, not check if your heart is man-made or not)

More free shit

Really, you can’t beat the value here. Movie screening, medical checkup, food, relaxation corner, and then now you also get a collectable-edition stress ball?

Yeah, there are others for you to collect as well. These cute little things change from time to time.

Woah, what do I need to do?

To qualify for eating the best meal and milo, you need to:

  • Be between 16 and 60 years old
  • Weigh at least 45 kg
  • Have a haemoglobin level of at least 12.5 g/dl (Male donor is 13.0 g/dl) (this is the Iron Man test I mentioned earlier)
  • Generally, be in good health
  • Not have had any symptoms of infection for at least 1 week e.g. sore throat, cough, runny nose, diarrhoea
  • Not have had a fever in the last 3 weeks
