San Pedro Red Cross airs Vampire Commercial to inspire blood donation
The San Pedro Red Cross (SPRC) have created an attention-grabbing commercial to promote blood donation. Featuring island telenovela stars, Josh Nuñez and Horacio “Chito” Guerrero, the commercial shows the importance of donating blood in a fun manner. SPRC aims to have at least 100 pints of blood at any point in time to be stored at the Belize Blood Bank, and used when needed by island residents.
The commercial, created in the Halloween spirit, is both scary and funny. Guerrero plays the role of a vampire who is turning SPRC members in to zombies after draining out their blood. The vampire then sets his sights on asking for blood from the Polyclinic. He is greeted by Nuñez and SPRC nurse Shirlee Arnould who are in the process of donating blood. Nuñez then explains to the vampire the importance of donating blood. The commercial was aired on Reef TV and according to SPRC member Laurie Norton, it is proving to be a great success.
