A Blood Donation Poster That Helps Save Lives and Charges Your Phone

The simple act of donating blood could actually help save someone's life one day. And to help drive that point home, ad agencies Publicis Sao Paulo and Fundação Pró-Sangue in Brazil created a poster with a built-in charging cable that also helps save a dying smartphone.

The blood-red charging cable cleverly looks like it's actually coming from the arm of someone who's donating blood. But in this case the life-giving material is electricity, and it's being used to save a phone, not another human being. But the advertisement still manages to drive the point home that if you're able to give blood, you certainly should. [YouTube via Taxi via Creative Criminals]
