LT Dr. Claire Elizabeth VanLandingham was a promising young Navy dentist when her life was tragically cut short. On January 3, 2018, she was murdered by an ex-boyfriend. She was a bright light and had big plans to make the world a more fair, compassionate, and loving place for all people. #BeMoreLikeClaire is a way for those of us who loved her – and those who never had the pleasure of meeting her – to pool our efforts to continue in some small way the work that she most certainly would have done.
Claire would frequently donate blood to give back to her community and those in need. According to the FDA (https://www.fda.gov/news-events/press-announcements/coronavirus-covid-19-update-blood-donations), blood is needed now more than ever. COVID-19 has caused many local blood drives to be cancelled. Donating blood is safe and only takes a moment of your time to make a difference.
As we enter this holiday season, we thought this campaign would be another tremendous way for all who are able to give thanks and give back. Thank you for your support!
