TransWorld To Host San Diego Blood Drive Tuesday, January 15th


Carlsbad, CA — On the heels of the holidays, TransWorld Media, with the help of its neighbors, EZIA and Wasserman Media Group, and the additional support of Bull Taco, will be hosting a blood drive at its headquarters—2052 Corte Del Nogal #100 Carlsbad, California on Tuesday, January 15 between the hours of 10:00 a.m and 3:00 p.m. Bull Taco has generously dedicated its services, and will be on-site serving tacos to all those who come out and donate their blood. With January typically being one of the lowest blood donating months for the San Diego Blood Bank, it’s important to TransWorld and its neighbors to help encourage the community to come out and participate in donating blood to help save patients whose lives depend on it.

“We are hoping people realize that with blood expiring every 42 days, their blood can be the gift of life that can sustain during the time after the holidays when supplies are generally significantly lower,” comments San Diego Blood Bank Representative Jennifer Bradley.

The blood drive is open to the public, and TransWorld’s goal is to get at least 34 pints of blood, or 25 donors, to donate to the blood bank, which will help save lives. Of course, the more donors, the better, since one single car accident victim could need 50 pints of blood simply upon arriving into the emergency room.

Those interested in donating should first log on to sandiegobloodbank.org to see if you are eligible to donate. About 37% of the population is eligible to give, but generally only about 3% do. For more information regarding this specific blood drive, please contact Lauren Machen via email at lauren.machen@transworld.net or check out the facebook event page here.

“This time of year we realize there are a lot of charities to give to, and a lot of people in need,” comments TransWorld Media’s Lauren Machen. “The TransWorld staff, along with Wasserman Media Group, EZIA, and Bull Taco, are excited to help support the San Diego Blood Bank with this drive, and hope to get an incredible turn-out from our employees and the community.”

To schedule an appointment online, log onto sandiegobloodbank.org, click on “Donate Blood” select “Appointments” and provide sponsor code: TWMD. Walk-ups are welcome. Please eat a good meal and drink plenty of fluids before donating blood. All donors must show picture identification.
