Last Sunday, I went down from Ehden very early to be part of the World Blood Donor Day festivities with DSC. The plan was to have a lot of fun, meet everyone there, donate lots of blood and platelets, listen to awesome music, laugh at Nemr’s jokes and whoop some Korean ass.
All of the above was accomplished, with the Forum de Beyrouth parking lot hosting the event. We were guilty of creating a traffic jam, with motorists parking on the side to see what all the commotion was about. What’s even more awesome is that some of them even came down, wore a red t-shirt and stood with us in the giant human blood drop.
Young, old, disabled and even pets all participated in the day’s activities. Stands with games, goodies, food and of course a blood donation center kept everyone busy. And if you’re done touring them, you could rock-climb a wall or repel off a crane, all for absolutely nothing.
At the end of the day, more than 2000 people were all laughed out, happy and many of them 450 milliliters lighter after donating blood. A total of 150 bags of blood were sent to St Jude’s Children’s Cancer Center thanks to all of you guys.
So, I would like to thank DSC from the bottom of my heart for all the fun, wholesome activities. I’d like to thank Nemr, Meen, Treehoppers and Jammit for entertaining us all throughout the day. I’d like to thank each and every person that was there that day and helped make WBD 2012 even moe awesome than last year’s!
