Thanks for taking the time to help with this remarkably important campaign.
According to the American Red Cross, every two seconds someone in the United States needs a blood donation, and every 30 seconds someone in the U.S. needs platelets. Because platelets must be used within five days, new donors are needed every day.
The severity of these statistics hit close to home when Mark Hughes, CEO of Anderson Partners, passed away after being diagnosed with leukemia. Throughout the course of his treatment, Mark and his wife, Susan, witnessed first-hand the importance of blood and platelet donations for patients with leukemia and other chronic diseases.
Anderson Partners encourages our staff to take paid time off to donate whole blood or blood platelets and we are now asking you, as our friends, family and colleagues, to help as well. Mark liked to think that every day had meaning and purpose, and we hope to give that gift of life to others in honor of Mark.
Please consider rolling up your sleeves and making a blood donation as part of our Anderson Partners and Mark Hughes Sleeves-Up campaign!
