Blood donation challenge

22.10.2018 klo 10:00 - 31.12.2018 klo 00:00

TXO AND THE FINNISH RED CROSS CHALLENGE ALL OF METROPOLIA’S STUDENT ASSOCIATIONS TO THE VERINEN TAISTO -CHALLENGE!

The annual blood donation challenge has started again, in cooperation with the Finnish Red Cross and Blood Services.

Each student association can form a ‘BloodGroup’, and every donation made for that group earns a point! You can also earn a point for attempting to donate, even if your donation is not accepted due to low hemoglobin or illness for example. Blood platelet donation also counts as a point.

Everyone who donates blood or makes an attempt also gets an overall patch!

800 blood donations are needed in Finland every weekday to help

  • people who have suffered traumatic accidents
  • newborn and premature babies,
  • people with serious illnesses.

Competing in the challenge is easy:

  1. Create a BloodGroup if your student association hasn’t already made one:
    www.veripalvelu.fi/ryhmat . Name the team Metropolia + “your team name”, for example Metropolia TXO ry
  2. If your student association competed last year and still has a registered team with the correct contact information, you can use the above link to reactivate the same team
  3. Test to see if you are a potential donator: www.sovinkoluovuttajaksi.fi/# If you have questions, you can call 0800 0 5801 (weekdays 8-17).
  4. If you are going to donate in a group (about 4-6 people at a time), you can book an appointment for the group: Sanomatalo location  029 300 1030  or Kivihaka location 029 300 1020
  5. You can also donate alone, but remember to mention your BloodGroup to earn your point!
  6. Blood platelet donation needs an appointment to Kivihaka, phone 029 300 1884. (Only if you are bloodtype A or O, have donated blood before, and weigh at least 75kg. The approximate time for donation is 1,5h. )
  7. Donate!

Rules: The competition is open until 31.12.2018. The winning association will get praise, glory, and a certificate from Blood Services!
