Stop and Give Campaign urges community to donate
Stop and Give is a national blood drive to honor anyone affected by motor vehicle collisions, to build our community blood centers and to promote awareness about safe driving. Last year, a random act of recklessness led to the death of Dr. Laurie Sherlock’s first child. The Sherlock’s started this event to encourage random acts of generosity to help the communities we live in. STBTC’s Stop and Give campaign runs from December 18, 2011 through February 2012.
How can people get involved?
· Donate blood during the 2012 Stop and Give campaign at any STBTC neighborhood donor room or mobile site.
· Redeem your points for a Stop and Give T-shirt and help spread the word!
· Honor a loved one. If you or someone you know has been a victim of a motor vehicle accident, you can hold a blood drive in their honor. Call 1-800-292-5534 ext. 1308 to start the process.
· Tell us your story or share it on StopandGive.org.
What is the power of a Stop and Give Drive?
There are over 39,000 deaths from automobile accidents annually in the US. Stop and Give drives give grieving and recovering communities the mechanism to do something positive with their pain. All presenting donors during STBTC’s Stop and Give campaign receive points to redeem for a Stop and Give T-shirt and more!
Why should I Stop and Give?
By spending about an hour of your time, you have the ability to save three people’s lives. You never know when tragedy might strike your family, your neighbor, yourself. Stop and Give now to help those who desperately need blood.
