In a new, innovative Facebook video, Nelson Mandela motivates all political leaders to donate blood and make a DIFFERENCE.
Miami, USA, June 23, 2015 (Newswire.com) - Did you know that someone needs blood every two seconds? What about the fact that only 5 percent of the population donates blood?
YES – the time is NOW for a radical change! No longer should our political leaders sit on the bench and watch disease, ecological crises, and wars continue to devastate entire nations. Blood donation is crucial in today’s world; and in a new, innovative 37-second YouTube video, Nelson Mandela nominates all political leaders to donate blood and make a difference within 24 hours!
Help people, even when you know they can't help you back.
We believe that giving blood is a powerful way to help #stophate, #starthelp and #givehope
Because the truth is this: Blood cannot be manufactured – it can only come from a volunteer donor. This means it takes the effort of a selfless human to help change lives.
This brief, compelling video that is destined to go viral should not go unnoticed. Nelson Mandela nominating political leaders to step up and donate blood within 24 hours is a challenge that puts the people and the planet first!
Although Mandela, internationally respected South African anti-apartheid revolutionary politician and philanthropist, passed in 2013, his vision for a better world is clearly attainable as seen in this video. Imagine what can be accomplished if all political leaders gave blood in 24 hours?! We know that about 1 in 7 people entering a hospital needs blood and that 1 pint (475 ml) of blood can save up to three lives.
We appreciate the vision of Mandela, the highly praised, peace-making politician who served as President of South African from 1994 to 1999, as his message motivates change for a brighter future. But it must take action on our part! We believe that if all political leaders give blood in 24 hours, the act of giving blood will erupt into a domino effect amongst the people. Now is the time for political leaders to truly lead by example and show everyone what is desperately needed in our society. As a whole, we do have the ability to help create change!
The need to give blood is constant, so it is important to contribute to a healthy and reliable blood supply for all. The act of donating blood takes only 5 minutes – something we all have time to spare no matter how busy our lives are. A true revolution begins with everyone… let’s start with those at the top!
Now is not the time to be indifferent! We encourage you to get involved and donate blood today!
