DESCRIBE THE EVENT, TRY TO INCLUDE HOW IT RELATES TO YOUR MISSION OR VALUES
There is currently a crisis in San Diego county with the amount of blood stored and available to people in need due to the Zika virus epidemic, rendering many individuals who have travelled to Mexico and other foreign countries ineligible to donate blood. While this issue could be solved by attracting more blood donors, we feel that many people do not understand the importance of donating blood and its potential to save lives. During one of our blood drives, we are going to have a poster set up with some information about donating blood and offer pedestrians a donut if they come and speak with us for five minutes about the importance of donating blood. Although a material incentive is necessary to initially attract individuals, we hope that we can cultivate an interest in blood donation, and hopefully have them sign up for a future blood drive. Students that learn more about blood donation might go tell their friends to donate as well, and thus take a step forward toward mitigating the blood deficit, saving numerous lives in the process. Our mission in Red Cross is to help make the community a healthier and safer place, promoting wellness and preparedness in the face of tragedy and disaster–taking a step to end the blood deficit in SD county can make blood transfusions more accessible, and help ensure that no life is lost because of the unavailability of blood.
