An annual campaign conceived and implemented by DC Shaper Roberto Carlos Garza Rodríguez, #Blood4All is a global initiative involving multiple hubs that aims to engage youth through social media to spark a conversation about becoming voluntary blood donors.
#Blood4All is a collaboration between the Global Shapers Community Hubs, government, international organizations, academic institutions, civil society and businesses. First held during the first week of December in 2016, in 32 cities of Europe, America, Asia and Africa. The Global Blood Drive helps an estimated 4000 adults around the world each year.
This year's DC campaign took place from December 9-31. We challenged each member of the DC Global Shapers Hub to donate blood, and to encourage others to donate blood, anytime during this period to help meet DC’s critical need for blood donations. And our Hub took up the challenge, with DC Shapers stepping up in all sorts of ways, from donating themselves, to helping friends or family members donate, to promoting the cause on social media.
