Approach

I enjoy donating blood!
But it's always tedious to check if the blood stock is low enough to need me to donate.
Check https://www.redcross.sg for blood stock level. I only donate when my blood stock level hits "Moderate" or below.

As a lazy person, checking the redcross.sg website every 3 months is too tedious!
Also, the blood stock for my blood type hardly falls below Healthy range.
I wonder, instead of me checking every 3 months, is there a way where I can get automatically notified if the blood stock for my blood type falls below a threshold?
