fans flood blood banks all over Andhra Pradesh
August has virtually become a "blood
donors" month with nearly one lakh people donating blood in a span of
just one week. With the birth anniversary of the late prime minister
Rajiv Gandhi and birthday of Megastar Chiranjeevi falling in the
month, literally there was no let up for the frenzied fans and
followers in giving the blood.
Hundreds of blood donation camps have been organised across the state
particularly on August 21 (Rajiv's birth anniversary) and August 22
(Chiru's birthday) where thousands of fans thronged the blood donation
camps. Chiru's fans proved the real mania to show their love for their
hero by donating blood.
According to information, nearly 50,000 units were donated by the mega
star's fans alone during the week-long birthday celebrations. Sources
said the blood banks in the state are filled with the stocks and
several banks have reportedly shifted the stocks to other storage
points as their capacities have already brimmed.
