Winnipeg Blood Drive Wrap Up

@CanadianSeacret, Myself and @RonCantiveros!

The #WpgBloodDrive Tweet Up is over! Big thank you to everyone that came and supported this event. I'm glad I decided to go ahead with organizing this blood drive. It shows how great the Twitter community is here in Winnipeg!

While I didn't reach my goal of 20 donors, I did have around 13 people take the plunge to come down and donate. This is still a success because that is 13 people who decided they wanted to help save a life, even if they weren't able to donate in the end. I applaud you for making that decision and supporting me!

For those that did attend, the winners of the prizes were:

  • Golf Passes  - @JayceeManzano

  • Pedicure - @CanadianSeacret

Please go and congratulate them! @CanadianSeacret was actually our first "official" donor to the Tweet Up though my friend @mennice went earlier in the day to kick things off. @JayceeManzano came to donate on behalf of his brother and was a first time donor! He champed it out and filled his donation bag in under 5 minutes. Impressive!

I would also like to thank @oh_eff out in Red Deer for all her handy tips and also sending me the amazing Tweetup name stickers!

If you didn't get a chance to come out to the Blood Drive and would like to contribute to my 20 donor goal, please @ me on twitter (@kurchenko) or email me krista(at) and I would be happy to book an appointment for you. If you need someone to come with you, I can even do that if I have the time :)

Also, would there be interest in an August Blood Drive Tweet Up? I had such a blast meeting some familiar twitter avatar faces in the flesh that I would love to do it again. Let me know!
