In 2018, the Singapore Red Cross (SRC) has launched its blood advocacy campaign, “BE THE 1” with the aim to encourage more people, in particular youths, to come forward and give blood. The campaign will be running until the end of July 2018.

To bolster the movement, “BE THE 1” was fronted by football superstar, Cristiano Ronaldo who is a strong advocate of blood donation. The statement added that Ronaldo first gave blood when he was 24 years old after seeing his teammate struggle to get bone marrow donations for his son. Since then, he is said to have been donating blood regularly, and avoids activities that would prevent him from doing so. Following the launch, Singapore Red Cross has joined the ranks of more than 80 blood donation centres across the world that has come onboard this global movement.
