We learned that there is a program that encorages you to donate blood at a shrine. We found that because the program Twitter account have followed us. It seems that a blood donation car is parked on the premises of the cooperating shrine and a blood donation booth is set up for only a day.
The event is sponsored as part of the "Temple and Shrine Utilization Culture Improvement Support Project" of the General Foundation for International Disaster Countermeasure.
Currently, it is being implemented in Tokyo and Hyogo prefecture.
The concept is
"We heard that the number of places where blood can be donated has decreased due to the effects of the new coronavirus infection, which has a serious impact on the blood supply to medical institutions and the General Foundation for International Disaster Countermeasure. Therfore, to support for blood donation projects at the Japanese Red Cross Blood Center in collaboration in shrines.
