Bleeding for a good cause: Blood donation at BFFT
Seriously-ill people need stored blood – in Bavaria alone, about 2,000 units are needed daily! Inspired by an employee’s suggestion through the company’s internal suggestion system, BFFT organized a blood drive on March 3rd at its headquarters in Gaimersheim, working in cooperation with the Blood Donor Service of the Bavarian Red Cross (BRK).
The team of the Business Sport Club (BSC) provided room for the event in the 4th floor fitness studio of the BFFT headquarters. After the blood drive, BFFT invited all employees to a free light meal. In addition, attractive prizes were raffled among all the employees. These included tickets for the BFFT Fansofas at FC Ingolstadt and CineStar Ingolstadt, as well as a 50 Euro shopping voucher.
In all, 64 BFFT employees registered on-site, and 53 of them were allowed to donate blood. At the end of the day, the balance amounted to about 27 liters of donated blood, 150 devoured sausage and cheese rolls, several empty boxes of drinks, and consistently-positive feedback from the staff and BRK. Above all, this included the good feeling of having made an important contribution to those in need.
BFFT was very pleased with the lively participation and sincerely thanks all the donors, the BRK Blood Donor Service and the BSC team!
