Did you know one blood donation has the power to save three lives?
This July, Hope 103.2 staff are teaming up with the Hopeland community to save 150 lives through the Hopeland Blood Drive!
In Australia, one in three people will need blood, yet only one in 30 donate. To have enough blood for everyone who needs it, Australia needs 31,000 blood and plasma donations every week — about one every five minutes.
To have enough blood for everyone who needs it, Australia needs one donation every five minutes.
Life depends on blood, so Hope 103.2 is holding a blood drive this July to show our support, and encourage our community listeners, families and friends across Sydney to donate blood and plasma. We’ve registered Hopeland as a Lifeblood Team – an initiative which unites teams across Australia to give life by giving blood or plasma.
Join team Hopeland, and together we’ll reach our goal of 150 lives saved this July.
How to get involved:
- Register a blood donor account if you don’t already have one – you can register online
- Join our Hopeland Lifeblood Team – just follow our step-by-step instructions on how to join a team
- Book a time to give life – every donation you make automatically goes towards your team’s tally and the overall blood challenge total!
It’s essential! Stay COVIDSafe while you donate blood
Now more than ever, Lifeblood still needs life-saving donations. They understand life is a little different at the moment, so it’s important that you follow all the instructions from the Red Cross Lifeblood team to make sure you keep yourself (and those around you) COVIDSafe.

What is blood used for?
Joining the Hopeland Lifeblood Team, and donating blood or plasma, will help people in a variety of different ways…
Want to give really big? Give Plasma
If you want to give more than once and get those numbers up, plasma donation is the way. It’s just as rewarding as giving blood, and you can donate as often as every two weeks.
Can’t donate right now? You still have a role to play
Spread the word far and wide: the more people you reach, the more you help.
Follow the live tally results, so you can see the life-saving difference the Hopeland team is making.
