Back The Blue Blood Drive
This past weekend, the members of Projekt Cars and Team Soldiercon combined forces to organize a Blood Drive using elements of cosplay and car shows. We reached out to perspective communities to help replenish the blood bank at Vitalant*.
This blood drive was designed to bring awareness to the lack of reserves located here in El Paso. El Paso suffered a devastating blow when we lost Officer Herrera, and the horrific incident demonstrated that, We as a community, need to sustain a bountiful blood bank.
Although the purpose of the event was to bring in as many donors as possible, we provided some additional incentives for those who participate….sponsors were also allowed to provide their own awards or give-a-ways
TEAM REPRESENTATION TROPHY
• this is not a judged event. Team with most vehicles/bikes present at event will win
CASH AWARD TO TEAM WITH MOST DONORS
• team which brings the most donors to event will win a cash award. **
After 4hours of receiving donors, we Thanked everyone for all showing interest in the BACK THE BLUE Blood Drive. The vendors who participated, had their logos added to the flyers, posters, and social media posts. All we asked is that they provided at least three donors from their company, and helped us promote the event through your social media.
This event was another learning experience. We learned that many of us cannot donate blood due to our Active Duty missions in other countries, the importance of following up with initial participants, and above all, remind the community the importance of donating blood on a continual basis
