Blood Sacrifice: 120 Metalheads donate their bloodJun 6th, 2016
“We are blood brothers!” – Last Friday, numerous metalheads gave proof of this in Hanover. In collaboration with MetalDays and the German Red Cross (GRC), 120 blood donors gathered under the claim Metaller helfen (“metallers help”), 40% of them donated for the first time. On average, the GRC has about 50 donors, out of those 10% first-timers.
With metal playing in the background, the blood donating metallers were rewarded with food and drinks. Afterwards, everyone had the chance to participate in a raffle and win prizes such as MetalDays tickets, band shirts, CDs and much more. No blanks involved!
The Blood Sacrifice was a complete success. We’re looking forward to the next one!
The bloody event enjoyed popularity in the media as well. Thanks to all for their support. Here are some examples:
