The Love Michigan Blood Drive has come to a close, and TMS is honored to have been a part of it. During the three day event, two thousand people turned out to donate in 7 different cities across the state. We had prepared all summer for it, so it was quite a thrill to find out that this event has cemented itself as THE MOST SUCCESSFUL blood drive in Michigan Blood's 55 year history.
Here's what people had to say about the event:
"...I waited an hour and a half tonight to give blood in GR because so many people turned out. Well worth it to get my awesome shirt...oh, and save some lives, too! :) Thanks!"
- Molly Frendo
"I was going to donate anyway, but I'll admit I went this week just because of the shirt. Love it!"
- Norma Sheller Pszczolkowski
"Just left awhile ago, the goodie bag is great, but the shirt is amazing. Thanks TMS!"
- Terri Baker McCready
"Thank you TMS!!! Love the shirt!!! They only had large and XL left, so my husband got a new shirt tonight! He says thank you too!!! :)"
- Beth Debri
"Got mine! Donate Blood! Save a life....or two!"
- Thomas Mansfield
"I was happy to donate, but even happier to get a TMS shirt!!"
- Renee Pattison
"WE LOVE YOU GUYS!!!! Almost 1,200 donors [in Grand Rapids] walked through our doors in 3 days and we have TMS to thank for that :-) Ahhhhh....the power of TMS shirt!"
-Kristen Sisson, Public Relations at Michigan Blood
