We're happy to announce that LifeSource has joined Donate Life Illinois as an official partner! As the statewide coalition of lifesaving donation agencies, LifeSource joins Donate Life Illinois' existing partners in our outreach efforts. The partnership was a no-brainer as LifeSource shares Donate Life Illinois' mission saving lives via selfless donation.
Welcome aboard LifeSource!
I've posted about blood donation before and call attention to the ongoing importance of blood donors. Donations tend to skyrocket during times of national crisis but much like the ongoing need for organ & tissue donors, there is a constant demand for blood supply. We often don't think about it, but blood is obviously key to numerous surgical procedures and especially with most organ transplant procedures.
As a way of increasing the amount of regular donors in and around Chicago, LifeSource recently launched their Brighten Life program where donors are rewarded for donating on a quarterly basis.
In addition, Facebook recently launched this application from Takes All Types as a way of increasing the national blood donor network. It will be interesting to see follow the effectiveness of this type of setup.
Are you or have you thought about being a regular blood donor? Let's hear it!
