Massive players such as Xbox, Google and Microsoft have all joined in the campaign to raise awareness about giving blood.

Now, TheLADbible Group's getting on board and hoping to make a difference too. For the next week, we are TheLDile. Yeah, hasn't got as much of a ring to it but it's for a great cause.

The sad fact is that there are 30 percent fewer new blood donors now compared to a decade ago. NHS Blood and Transplant (NHSBT) are hoping that with this latest campaign they can attract 200,000 new donors. The campaign is running until August 21. It's a stroke of genius in terms of marketing the campaign. It is hard-hitting and unusual, but also thought-provoking.

The issue at the heart of all this is: why are we donating less blood? Is it inconvenient? Is everyone scared of needles? We need to figure this out.

If you do go to give blood - take a selfie and upload it to Twitter with #TheLDile and we'll feature the best ones in an article.

Do some good, give blood.
