Face Off 2015

Hello!

We have lots of exciting news for you this Face Off! We are close behind Michigan State University in terms of percentage productivity at our blood drives, so continue encouraging your friends to donate! These wonderful donors had a great time at our drive in Pierpont Commons today.

Next Wednesday, 2/11, from 2-8 pm in the Pendleton Room of the Michigan Union, Blood Drives United is hosting a sponsor blood drive. The aim of this blood drive is to create an inclusive space, raise awareness, and educate the community. Anyone who is ineligible to donate because of the MSM (men who have sex with men) policy is encouraged to bring someone to donate on their behalf, which will demonstrate that potentially twice as much blood could be collected if this policy were lifted. We will be engaging in conversations to address opinions about the policy, how we can better educate those on campus, and ways to bring this activism to the FDA to push for a more inclusive policy change. Those who attend will receive a free t-shirt, have the opportunity to be interviewed for a video explaining the policy, and will be able to engage in meaningful dialogue about social justice in blood donation and healthcare.
