Give back to the community by donating your blood at a cinema near you.

4 Aug – This August, visiting a cinema near you doesn't mean you only get to watch movies, you can also do an act of charity by donating your blood!

Local cinemas are set to hold several blood donation drives this month at selected locations across the country.

MBO Cinemas, one of the participating cinema chains, will conduct its MBO Blood Donation Drive 4.0 this weekend at 25 locations nationwide, held from 12pm to 6pm for two days at each location.

From 4 to 5 August, moviegoers in Kedah and Johor can donate their blood from 12pm to 6pm at the following locations:

• MBO Alor Setar Mall
• MBO Landmark Central Kulim
• MBO Central Square
• MBO Batu Pahat Mall
• MBO Kluang Mall
• MBO U Mall Skudai
• MBO Heritage Mall
• Kota Tinggi
• MBO KSL City Mall, JB.

From 5 to 6 August, moviegoers in Klang Valley, Perak, Melaka, Sabah, Sarawak and Negeri Sembilan can head to the following locations to donate their blood, also from 12pm to 6pm:

• MBO the Starling
• Damansara Utama
• MBO Brem Mall
• MBO Citta Mall
• MBO Galaxy Ampang
• MBO Harbour Place, Klang
• MBO Kepong Village Mall
• MBO Desa Petaling SPARK
• MBO Setapak Central

• MBO Era Square Mall, Seremban
• MBO Melaka Mall
• MBO Cinemas Teluk Intan
• MBO Taiping Sentral
• MBO Imago Mall
• MBO The Spring, Kuching.

This year, using the theme "Superhero" for its campaign, the local exhibitor collaborates once again with the National Blood Bank (PDN) to replenish the blood supply at PDN.

Since its blood donation campaign has collected close to 10,000 pints of blood in the past three years, MBO is hoping to continue the success this year.

Another local cinema chain, Golden Screen Cinema (GSC), is also collaborating with PDN to hold a blood drive, open to its Klang Valley and HQ staff, as well as its partners.

The blood drive will be held at GSC headquarters in Damansara Jaya from 10am to 3pm on 16 August 2017.
