Employee Stories
Australian Red Cross is a volunteer-based organisation with 110 years of experience and a community of 20,000+ members and volunteers. One of the most visible divisions of the Red Cross is Lifeblood, which collects not only blood but breast milk as well.

#meetKaren - The RUD February Charity Champion who spearheads the RUD Australia Lifeblood Team Donation Program for #Redcross.

Karen Gabolinscy works in the HR and WHS Department at RUD and is very passionate about helping others. The People & Culture team sat down with Karen to understand why she is passionate about Lifeblood and how RUD is helping the community through this program.

How many years have you been involved with the Red Cross?

36 years

What inspires you to continue advocating for the Red Cross?

My small contribution continues to help save lives, assisting the unemployed with ongoing support and emergency disaster support across Australia.

Why is this important to you?

I continue to support it as I know that the Australian Community has been receiving the support they need from a caring charity for 110 years now!

How does the Red Cross help save lives?  

To know that for every 1 blood donation made can save up to 3 lives… with my 51 donations = 153 lives saved!!!

How does the RUD team help with the cause?  

In 2023 we have registered a Red Cross Blood Life Team called “RUD Australia”, and we have new staff members joining throughout the year with regular donations. In 2023 we had 11 donations and in 2024, we have started off with 5 donations for the team!
