Our purpose is two-fold:
- To galvanize as many folks as possible to give blood on the upcoming 2016 dates of June 18. August 13, October 8, and ongoing: blood donors can give one pint of whole blood every two moons or 56 days, double-red blood cells every four moons, platelets every two weeks.
- To grow as individuals, families, communities and as a global network of humanity by connecting, sharing opportunities to give blood together and expressing why we do it.
