Donating blood, like becoming an organ donor, is one of the most selfless, yet completely simple things to do in life. And it doesn’t cost you a thing.
Bloodstock levels in the Western Cape decline during the festive season – just as the number of road accidents spike. For the Western Province Blood Transfusion Service (WPBTS), maintaining a five-day blood stock level through this period is critical, as it ensures that hospitals have sufficient safe blood to treat everyone.
Cynics might ask why they need to give their blood, just so that someone involved in a drunken late-night crash might live. Well, that someone in that crash might be your loved one, fighting for his or her life after someone else, unthinkingly, sped through a red light at an intersection.
Maintaining a five-day bloodstock is difficult at the best of times.
Bloodstock at the WPBTS usually hovers around a two-day supply, year-round, which just shows how much work needs to be done, to encourage and educate new donors.
WPBTS Corporate Public Relations Officer, Michelle Vermeulen, says many of their regular donors are away or very busy during the holiday season. At the same time, their external blood donation clinics at corporate offices, schools and factories close for the December break.
To mitigate the impact of the shortage, the WPBTS is appealing to all residents, regular donors and holidaymakers to set aside just 30 minutes of their day to visit a clinic. Each donation could save up to three lives.
Here at Smile 90.4FM we definitely ended the year on a high note as we hosted the WPBTS at our new offices for our final blood drive of 2018.
More than 70 Smile 90.4FM listeners and our own staff members came out to give their pint of blood. Nearly half of the donors had never donated before, which is really a big deal. It also means, that the blood donated at our offices on the day, a whopping 33,25 litres, potentially already saved about 210 lives.
Thank you to all those who came through to give some of your life-giving blood.
But let’s not stop there. It shouldn’t just be a priority some of the time when it’s convenient for you. Make it your mission to seek out a blood donation clinic every eight weeks.
It’s never been easier. You can download the WP Blood app to find your nearest donation point. You can also follow them on Facebook (WP Blood) on Twitter (@WPBlood) and Instagram (wp_blood).
For those who are social media challenged, you can also contact their offices around the province, so even if you’re on holiday, please make some time to donate.
It’s 30 minutes of your time, and totally worth it:
The Cape Peninsula region includes Cape Town’s northern and southern suburbs, as far as Durbanville in the north and Simon’s Town in the south. Phone 021 507 6364.

The power of radio lies in its ability to affect how the listener feels.
Smile 90.4FM was created with the deliberate intention of putting smiles on the faces of the people of the Mother City.
The notion of highlighting news that is overtly positive and delivering it with empathy, remains alien in mainstream radio circles. And tampering with the definition of what is news, is tantamount to letting your freak flag fly high.
We are supposed to believe that keeping up with the news is important and of value, yet there is no evidence to support the rationale that placing the worst of humanity as item number one in a news bulletin, has changed the world for the better.
On the contrary, it is becoming widely accepted these days that the news contributes significantly to increased levels of anxiety and depression. Presenting information that generates fear and worry without balancing context, or suggesting solutions, cannot be morally justified. Yet, focusing on news that comes from the more admirable side of humanity is considered soft news or not news at all.
Convincing news people that they might be clinging to a relic of a dead era is not an easy job, but it is a necessary one. A decision to do just that was taken at Smile 90.4FM and the news product was changed. The positioning line ‘Amplifying the good news in the Mother City’ was introduced to clearly convey the core message of the Smile news philosophy.
The decision to innovate was not taken lightly. A great deal of thought went into understanding the psychology of audio messaging and the effects excessive negative information has on evolving multi-cultural communities in transforming markets.
Headlines that create anxiety diminish capacity for transformation. Stories that inspire and create a feeling of awe, gratitude and optimism make people open to sharing, caring and connecting.
Listeners come to Smile 90.4FM specifically for the way it makes them feel. There is no justification for our news not adhering to the same feelgood and inspirational goals as the rest of our programming content – as long as it is factually accurate, topical and relevant.
Today, 12 March The Smile Good News Network comes into being. It will carry the station’s best positive news stories and the latest trending news.
Smile 90.4FM is still a baby in the Cape Town radio market. We turn just five years old on 25 March. We’ve been blessed with steady growth over the years. Our listenership currently stands at 169,000 upper LSM, sandwich generation influencers. Over the last twelve months our listener number has grown by a healthy 36%. (BRC Ram February 2018).
While it cannot be stated with certainty that amplifying the good news in the Mother City has driven our growth, the differentiation of our news product certainly offers our listeners a more optimistic, solutions driven and humane perspective on life.
Please join us on 90.4FM if you are in Cape Town or stream us live on www.smile904.fm. There’s always a reason to SMILE!
Congratulations to Erich Kuschke from Durbanville who won R100 000 for correctly identifying the Smile Secret Sound as “putting a toilet brush back into its holder”.
