The international Committee of the red cross (ICRC) held in El Salvador unusual action by inviting the fans of the British rock band Iron Maiden VIP tickets to the concert on March 6 in exchange for the donor’s blood donation. According to BBC Russian service, to get these tickets he wanted a few hundred fans.

“People responded positively to the initiative to donate blood to get a VIP ticket to the concert of Iron Maiden,” he told AFP spokesman of the red cross of El Salvador Susanna Hernandez, quoted Equilibrio Informativo.
The Red Cross hope that the campaign will motivate Salvadorans to regular blood donation. The organization noted that people had not only the joy of receiving free tickets to the concert, but also pride in assisting those in need of blood.
We will remind, in Romania in July last year held a similar event – tickets to a music festival UNTOLD in Transylvania was handed out for free in exchange for blood. The campaign was organized in order to make unpopular blood donation in Romania more and more common. The campaign “Pay in blood” was organized jointly with the National Institute of blood transfusion.
