Give blood, get coffee

When it comes to sustaining life, there is one vital liquid without which humans can not survive.

Coffee. That, and blood.

The South African National Blood Service (SANBS) now offers both.

The SANBS and Nespresso have joined forces to bring world-class coffee blends to life-saving heroes and heroines.

If you need a quick pick-me-up after dona­ting, the SANBS will now offer every blood donor a free Nespresso coffee at donor centres across the country.

Not only will donors be asked to select their favou­rite coffee blends, they will also stand the chance of winning an exclusive Nespresso machine.

Simply take a picture of you and your “brew” at any SANBS donor centre and tag the SANBS on Facebook (@sanbs) or Twitter and Instagram (@theSANBS), using #SANBS.

But why stop at saving lives? The SANBS is also helping to save the environment. That is why it does not use plastic lids for the paper take-away coffee cups.

The SANBS will also be recycling your used Nespresso pods for you. Simply bring them along when you donate blood.

Thanks to the SANBS and Nespresso, donating blood now has more perks than ever.
