Become a Halloween hero: donate blood or plasma and save lives

17 Oct 2023
All Committees

This Halloween give the gift of life by donating blood or plasma to the Belgian Red Cross. As the demand for these vital resources remains high, potential recipients can end up on long waitlists. Your act of kindness can make a world of difference. Sign up to donate blood today and be a hero to someone in need. Every drop counts – you have the power to save lives.


  • In 30 minutes, you can save 3 lives.
  • Belgium needs just under 500,000 bags per year to meet its needs. 
  • Less than 1 person in 10 donates blood, whereas 1 in 7 will need blood someday. 

Because you can make an appointment online for a blood donation in one of the following permanent blood collection centres:

  • Red Cross blood centre: Rue des Alexiens 16b, 1000 Brussels
