Indie88 Halloween Blood Drive a Blood Sucking Success

MORE DONORS THAN CAPACITY

TORONTO, ON (Sunday, October 26, 2014) – Indie88’s Second Annual Halloween Blood Drive was an overwhelming success. Not only did the 50 available slots for donating blood quickly fill up, Canadian Blood Services managed to exceed capacity and squeeze a total of 58 donors into their Bloodmobile. Donors that couldn’t be accommodated at the mobile clinic were directed to other clinics in Toronto or were able to book a future appointment.

The Indie88 Halloween Blood Drive also saw a substantial increase in the number of first-time donors. Where a typical clinic with 58 donors would usually see less than eight first-timers, there were 35 at the Indie88 event.

Canadian Blood Services launched an official appeal this fall asking Canadians to donate blood immediately to increase the critically low blood inventory. In response, Indie88 (CIND-FM) launched their own campaign inviting listeners to give during a live broadcast between noon and 5pm on Saturday, October 25th from Ripley’s Aquarium of Canada.

Listeners can still support the Indie88 Halloween Blood Drive year-round, by registering for the Indie88 Partners for Life team at Indie88.com and making an appointment to give blood at any Canadian Blood Services clinic.
