Dear Community Members and Blood Donors,
On behalf of Lions Club of Berkeley Annapurna and Blood Donors of America I would like to extend my sincere thanks to you for donating blood held in American Red Cross Society, Oakland Donor Center on June 20th 2015.
Lions Clubs International is the largest service club organization in the world. Our 1.4 million members perform valuable service in 210 countries and geographic areas around the globe. It is a leading organization serving with a motto” We serve”.
Since last five years the club has been initiating to donate blood to needy people. Due to massive earthquake in Nepal the club had to postpone its annual drive and even in this crucial time and very short notice we have been able to collect 61 pint of blood as reported by Red Cross society’s Regional coordinator Constance.
Thank you for taking time out from your very schedule to become a special donor. Your one hour spent in such a noble cause will be always appreciated. Without your kind donation and support we would not be able to save someone’s life. As we all know that the act of donating blood is giving life, our blood could save anyone’s life from a little baby to an old individual, One cannot make blood, it is a gift we all have inside of us to give to those who are injured, sick, or in need. There’s no doubt that the need is huge. However, the support of donors like you is helping us to make it possible to help the people in achieving a healthier, happier and fruitful life.
In spite of the various reasons, especially those who were recently back from Nepal helping Earthquake victims in the ground zero, you could not donate blood but you really inspired other to do their part of service to humanitarian ground. I know some one of you could not donate blood but your valuable presence inspired other to donate.
Thank you for encouraging others by your gracious presence. Thanks for being a part of this group. Your act of noble kindness of volunteering blood drive will serve as an inspiration to other people.
Please accept my sincere thanks to all the donors, volunteers, team of blood drive including the staff of Red Cross society and community members without your help and support we would not be able to host this event. Once again thank you so much.
