Giovanna, Olivia, and Sophia have been regular blood donors at Boston Children’s Hospital since they turned 16, the legal age to donate. When one of the twins underwent major surgery and needed blood at the age of 12, the significance of blood donation hit home.
Today, their goal is to encourage young people like themselves to become life-long donors. Donating takes only a little time, but the result is huge and lasts forever! Each pint can help make well three children. Their first blood drive held on November 11, collected more than 30 units of blood! That's equal to helping up to 90 children.
Their blood drive will take place on Saturday, March 4, at the Hockomock YMCA, 45 Forge Hill Road, in Franklin from 9:00 am to 2:00 pm.
|Giovanna and Olivia Sabini-Leite, seniors at Franklin High School, are coordinating the blood drive March 4|
Sign up on-line at halfpints.childrenshospital.org for an appointment time (sponsor code YMCAFR), or contact Giovanna and Olivia at (857)266-3324, or firstname.lastname@example.org, or email@example.com, for more information and to sign up.
Get on board the bus, and give the gift of life!
Hope to see you on March 4 on the Boston Children's Blood Mobile bus!
