The Blood Bag Project

"The Blood Bag Project, a craft project that aims to raise awareness of the rare blood condition Diamond Blackfan Anaemia.
The project has been set up by textile artist Leigh Bowser, whose young niece Chloe suffers from Diamond Blackfan Anaemia and wants to encourage people to donate blood. Chloe’s main source of help is through blood donation. However, Leigh is unable to give blood herself and understands she’s not alone. This project is for those who want to help the blood cause by donating in another way.
The Blood Bag Project is about raising awareness and is not a charity, but does hope to raise a little money along the way!"
You can help by making textile bags to raise awareness, donating and by donating blood.
