Organize a blood donation campaign

Do good with a smile on your face! Communities, associations and educational institutions can encourage their members and partners to help together by organising a blood donation campaign. Join us and make the blood circulate!

 

If you are planning a local campaign, please agree on the dates and other arrangements with your nearest Blood Service unit. Assistance for organising a national campaign is available through the address info(at)veripalvelu.fi.

The more active you are and the more inspiring the message, the more donors your will attract. In the campaign message or advertisements, you should include the campaign slogan, dates and the organising party, why donation is important, where people can participate in the campaign, and the basic information on who can donate (link to the online test www.sovinkoluovuttajaksi.fi and freephone information line for donors +358 800 0 5801 for additional questions). Urge the participants to enter their names on the campaign list at the donation location, so that the results of the campaign, i.e. the number of donors, can be counted afterwards. So, when contacting us, please inform us in which blood donation locations you want to have your lists of names.

At your request, the Blood Service may deliver a certificate of honour to the winner of the challenge. You can also give your own awards to the winners.

Social media is a place where campaigns are easy and efficient to organise. Good luck to planning!

Current campaigns:
Suomen Motoristit (SMOTO) ry's annual “Spilling blood, but keeping it under control” donation and Stem Cell Registry recruitment campaign from February to October 2015.
