You may have heard that the Red Cross has an ample supply of blood on hand, even with the extra demand due to the Boston Marathon bombing, and that donors have been lining up to do their part. That’s true.
What you might not have heard yet is that the Red Cross has some planned training for their staff coming up soon and they’ll only be at 40% capacity for 5 weeks.
So let’s help keep the stock ready for people in need! We’ve set up a blood drive with the Red Cross for tech companies in the Boston/Cambridge area.
You’ll be graciously hosted by the good people at hack/reduce in Kendall Square. The Red Cross will have some Red Sox t-shirts to hand out to donors, not to mention an energizing snack of orange juice and cookies!
And, as if you needed any extra motivation…

Please, if you work at a tech company in the Boston/Cambridge area, round up your coworkers and join us.
To sign up to be a donor, please visit our blood drive registration page hosted by the Red Cross.
