Transfusion departments

So far, we have only several transfusion departments from the Czech Republic. You can send us information about a transfusion department from your country, for example in the case you would like to organize a meet-up there.

I would like to organize a meetup in my town...

Great! Thank you so much for your interest in this subject.

In order to become a mentor, you need to:

  1. Be commited - we will not organize you too much, you will have to do it. We will give you the date and we can help you a bit, but you need to spread the word and recruit the new donors. You need to be creative and find the new ways to help. We know nothing about your area - you are the boss there...
  2. Be interested - learn the information about the blood donation, mainly those that are specific in your region.
  3. Be reliable - after you specify the time and the place of the meetup, you have to be there. There is no way to stress this enough! Make sure that your local transfusion department has free capacities before you promiss anything.
  4. Be responsive and friendly! - answer the questions you might get about the subject. And of course, answering them in a nice way...

Can you do this? Drop me a line to info@binarybloodday.com and include:

  • Twitter username and the real world name ;-)
  • Country and city where you would like to organize the meetup
  • How many times you donated blood (zero is not a problem)
  • Where and at what time you would like to organize a meetup

We will give you space on the pages and mention you on Twitter.

I have never given blood - is it safe? Where do I find more info?

First, welcome aboard! :-)

Second... Yes - blood donation is pretty much safe, it does not hurt and it is not horrible - you can put all your fears (of needles, of hygiene, ...) aside. Of course, this is valid only in the case you visit a specialized transfusion department and you must be a healthy person who is eligible as a donor - please make sure you are.

Here are some useful links - you can find info about what criteria you need to match before you can give blood, about benefits of blood donation and about what will happen after you arrive at the transfusion department:

Please, make 100% sure you are eligible for blood donation before joining us - we wouldn't like this event to be a disappointment for you.

I am a foreigner in the country I currently live, can I still give blood?

Generally, there are limitation for the guys who came from abroad and are not yet the citizens of the country.

Usually, the answer to this question depends on the type of the insurance you have. Please, check with your insurance company if the free blood donation is covered by your insurance for you in your specific case. This is the only way to make sure you will not be disappointed after you join us...

Man, I have far more questions than you have listed here...

Please, do not hesitate to contact us via e-mail: info@binarybloodday.com. We will respond to all questions you may have the best that we are able to, either publicly or privately...
