Winnipeg Blood Drive Tweet-Up!

In an effort to give back to the community and after being inspired by a similar blood drive in Red Deer, AB, I have decided to hold a blood drive here in Winnipeg!

Summer is a tough time period for blood donations as people are on vacation or going out to their cabins. Unfortunately, the need for blood is still there and it is typically greater in Summer due to people being active.

I would like to encourage everyone to come out to donate to this fantastic cause. You will get to meet a bunch of local Twitter users, Tumblr users and perhaps some dedicated Facebook fiends as well! Even you aren't on these networks and heard about this blood drive come down and maybe we can influence you ;) I mean, my klout is 44.

Details:

Winnipeg Blood Clinic at 777 William Ave

Monday, July 9th from 4pm-7pm

There are 20 spots reserved for the Tweet up and if you want to ensure a spot, let me know of your intention to come! I can possibly arrange for more spots if enough people sign up.

The Red Deer, AB tweet-up had 20 donors! 20 for Red Deer! I know Winnipeg can do better. We are a giving city. They don't call us "Friendly Manitoba" for nothing! This is a challenge to all Winnipeggers to step up and donate to a great cause. All it takes is about 20 minutes of your day.

I am having to do it on a monday as it is the only night the clinic is open at night. It's also a good day because you won't have to miss any football/soccer/hockey or club night outings. You can donate, socialize and be on your way.

If you are tweeting about it use hashtag #WpgBloodDrive

If you'd like to sign up or have any questions, please email me at medlabmaven (at) gmail (dot) com and I'd be happy to add you to the list.

Thanks in advance, I hope to see you there!
