“Giving is an investment of sorts.
Donations to charities is investing in those less fortunate. The ROI is a better society.
Gratitude creates the mindset needed for a healthy and wealthy life.
Besides cash we can donate our time, our ears for listening and even our blood!
I became a first time plasma donor today and learnt a few things.
Blood has a use by date and can’t be stored more than a couple of months. Plasma 12 months.
Australians donate about 45% of the blood we use in saving lives.
The rest we import at cost. Mostly from the US but also from other nations.
Most all plasma goes to CSL to make blood products that save or prolong life.
CSL pays a modest 2.5% dividend but is most popular for its growth through tremendous success in developing blood products over the last 7 years.
Shares bought for $0.80 cents when CSL listed in April 1994 sold for $230 in September 2018.
A great Australian company.
Saving people’s health so they can save and spend their wealth.”
