1) A mega Blood Donation Camp would be jointly held by Shree Aniruddha Upasana Foundation, Sadguru Shree Aniruddha Upasana Trust, Dilasa Medical Trust & Rehabilitation Centre, Aniruddha Samarpan Pathaak, Aniruddha’s House of Friends, Aniruddha’s Academy of Disaster Management on Sunday, 11th April 2010.

2) Venue:
Shree Harigurugram, Government Colony, Kherwadi, Bandra (East), Mumbai.

3) Timing of Camp:
Morning 9:00 am to evening 6:00 pm.
4) WHY SHOULD YOU DONATE BLOOD ???
I) Its best for your health…

a) Blood donation is a unique donation.

b) Our body contains approximately 4.5 – 5 litres of blood out of which only 300 ml blood is withdrawn. Immediately after donation, within 2 – 3 hours our body produces new blood cells and thus the blood in the body gets refreshed. After donation of blood, with little rest of 15 – 20 mins, one can continue with their daily chores and activities. Thus donating blood helps in stimulating generation of new blood cells and thereby increasing our fitness and immune system of our body.

c) Donating blood helps reduce chances of heart attack to one-third.
II) Param Poojya Bapu likes it the most…
a) As we all know it’s the time when we all Shraddhavans celebrate Vardhaman Vrathdhiraj and as per Param Poojya Bapu this is the time when we should donate something. Donation done during these times does 10 times more good to our destiny than donation at any other times. There can’t be a better donation than donating blood.

b) Moreover, Bapu has called the drop of donated blood as one of the ten drops He loves the most. (Please find the image of text from Shreemad Purushartha Grantharaj authored by Sadguru Bapu as justification at the start of the blog).

III) Its the best form of gift you can give to society and humanity…
So guys what are we thinking about ??? Let’s step out and donate our valuable droplets of Blood. Your Valuable blood can save one’s life…

A kind request to all to give their maximum support for this Camp and also help spreading the word.


5) Science has progressed a lot but till date we haven’t been able to find an option to the human blood. Neither can human blood be produced in any factory nor can blood of any animal be used for transfusion to humans. Blood of only a human can be transfused to another human and so by donating blood we can help in saving lives of other humans.

7) Its best for everyone to leave the fear and wrong prejudices surrounding blood donation. There is 4.5 litres to 5 litres of blood in the human body out of which only 300 ml. is drawn out at the time of its donation.

8) Age Limit for Donation:
Any Male or Female of within the age group of 18 - 60 can be a blood donor.
