Red Cross

Red Cross has a particularly difficult time getting people to donate blood in Japan. There's a kind of superstition regarding the importance and uniqueness of one's blood, and a squeamishness in seeing it being extracting through a needle. While the Red Cross has succeeded in making blood look cute with "Chi-chan", they have yet to attract many donors.

A sheet of paper near the door says that because of the recent typhoons, the Red Cross is in desperate need of more blood.
