Come support CSA in our first annual blood and bone marrow drive in collaboration with the Puget Sound Blood Center during the month of giving. What better way to give back to your community than by saving a life? The life you save could be that of your friend, brother, classmate, or neighbor.

Monday, November 10, 2008
Time: 10:00am - 4:00pm
Location:   HUB 108
**Lunch break will be from 1:00pm-1:45pm, so please donate before 1pm or after
1:45pm.

Why is CSA holding this event you ask? Because ETHNICITY MATTERS.

For blood donation:
- ethnic donors represent only 1% of all eligible blood donors in the region
- antigens are inherited and a perfect match is best found within one's own
ethnic and racial group
- a perfect match is often required for patients with sickle cell disease and
any condition that requires multiple transfusions of blood

For bone marrow registration:
- 90% of donor matches are found within your same racial or ethnic community
- only 2 out of 10 patients find the bone marrow match needed to save their
lives
- people of color are underrepresented on the bone marrow registry, making it
difficult to find a match

Just to clarify, you will NOT be asked to donate your bone marrow on site, but
merely to do a cheek swab to get on the registry, so that in the rare chance
that there is a match, you will be able to save someone's life. A surgical
procedure is not even required!

If you are unable to donate for any reason and would like to help out, please
volunteer for us! Contact our community service coordinator, Cassie at
xiz@(protected).

Also, this event is not limited to donors of color. We welcome everyone to
donate!

We thank you in advance for your compassion.
