If you’re a blood donor aged 18-35, you can also join Australia’s register of volunteer blood stem cell donors. Just sign up below and make sure to mention it when you book your next blood donation. Note that our registry is a completely separate organisation to the Australian Red Cross Lifeblood – but they can help you register with us while you are donating blood.
Blood stem cell donation is a simple, safe process that can potentially cure an otherwise incurable disease and save a life. How amazing is that! Hear from some patients about what stem cell donation means for them.

Welcome Blood donors!

Because donations only happen when an ideal immune system match is found, most people who join the registry will never get the phone call asking them to donate. For those that do get the call, donating blood stem cells isn’t a big deal. Most of the time you’ll have a short course of injections followed by a few hours sitting in a comfy chair while your life-saving cells are filtered out of your blood. We’ll be with you every step of the way making sure you get the best medical care and all the information you could possibly need. Before signing up, check out our website to understand more about the donation process, find out what our donors and patients have to say and how we protect your privacy and anonymity.
Just by signing up you are offering hope to thousands of patients in Australia and around the world who are desperately searching for the match that can save their life. So we want to make sure everyone who signs up is committed to being there when needed and we’ll keep in touch with you to stay up to date and eager to help. We at Strength to Give love blood donors – you’re not scared of needles, and we know you step up when needed. Although you don’t have to be a blood donor to join our registry, we’re pleased our friends at Lifeblood encourage eligible blood donors to sign up. It’s important to note that Strength to Give is an initiative of the Australian Bone Marrow Donor Registry – a charity operating for 30 years to support Australian blood stem cell donors and transplant patients. Although we work with the Australian Red Cross Lifeblood, we are a separate organisation.
If you are:
Aged between 18-35 (see why an age limit is necessary)
Willing to anonymously donate your blood stem cells to anyone in need of a transplant, anywhere in the world
Generally healthy (we cover this in a bit more detail in the next steps)
Ready to do this

Let’s Go!
