True Blood teams up with the NHS to #GiveTrueBlood this Halloween!

True Blood teams up with the NHS to #GiveTrueBlood this Halloween!

HBO’s True Blood teams up with NHS Blood and Transplant to encourage fans and cast of the show to donate this Halloween!

Fans and cast members of HBO’s hit TV show TRUE BLOOD are being encouraged by NHS Blood and Transplant to sign up to become blood donors this Halloween. As the wildly successful show has come to an end, with the FINAL SEASON releasing on Blu-ray and DVD on 10th November, vampire-loving fans of the show are being asked to become donors to help save lives.

Many underestimate the need to become a blood donor, as over 6,000 donations are needed every day. People wishing to become donors can sign up by visiting blood.co.uk where they can also book an appointment to donate. Once people have registered on the website, they are encouraged to take a selfie and tweet it along with #givetrueblood. Cast and fans of the show are rallying around to show their support of the initiative.

Jon Latham, Assistant Director at NHS Blood and Transplant said,

“We are encouraging all True Blood fans to register as blood donors this Halloween. Blood is something we all expect to be there for us when we need it, yet only 4% of us actually give blood. Many people would not be alive today if it wasn't for the generosity of our donors. Most people who are fit and healthy can give blood, but all donors have to meet certain criteria.  So that’s vampires out!”

HBO’s TRUE BLOOD: THE COMPLETE SEVENTH SEASON is released on Blu-ray and DVD on 10th November 2014.
