Comments from our past participants:

“This project was both fun and a valuable experience. I learned about the importance of donating blood so other people who need it can use it. What I enjoyed most about this project is getting to educate others in my community about blood donations. Most of the audience said they learned a lot and had fun with the games we organized. Overall, I think this project is a good opportunity to develop leadership, event planning, and public speaking skills while helping the larger community. I decided to continue volunteering at Bloodworks after this project was done.” – Wendi Z
