Thailand’s Red Cross hoping for bloody Halloween

Thailand’s Red Cross Society had its staff and volunteers dress up as ghosts, monsters and witches for Halloween at its centre for giving blood.

The donation room at the society’s National Blood Centre was festooned with faux spiderwebs and plastic bats of the blood-sucking kind.

At a minimum, nurses had horns or bat wings attached to their hats; others had macabre face paint, and a few gung-ho ghouls went all out in full dress as witches, ghosts and creatures of indeterminate monstrosity.

The Red Cross says the need for donated blood grows by 8-10% a year.
