Updated: 2005-01-03 15:56

Starting in 2005, Shanghai blood donors can use their donation certificates to play the lottery, having chances to win a car.

A blood donation appeal with a difference has been launched on the streets of Shanghai.

From January 1st to 3rd, donation vans provided by Shanghai's Blood Administration Office, or SBAO, will tour the city's eight districts, collecting volunteers.

Starting in 2005, blood donors will enjoy an extra incentive. They can use their donation certificates to play the lottery, and have the chance to win a car.

The SBAO have been working with the lottery organizers to get the scheme started, and they hope it will attract more much-needed blood donors.
