Wear Orange Blood Drive for SFV Moms Demand Action

1 /111

Orange is the color that Hadiya Pendleton’s friends wore in her honor when she was shot and killed in Chicago at the age of 15 — just one week after performing at President Obama’s 2nd inaugural parade in 2013. After her death, they asked the Gun Violence Prevention community to stand up, speak out, and Wear Orange to raise awareness about gun violence.

The Red Cross has to collect 15,000 blood donations every day to have enough blood to help patients in 2,700 hospitals and transfusion centers across the country. That’s a lot of patients in need and all of us, coming together, can help ensure patients receive life saving blood. Victims of Gun Violence need ten times more blood than other injuries, depleting the already low blood supply in our country.

Our goal for the SFV Moms Demand Action Wear Orange local group is 111 pledges to represent the 111 Americans who die due to gun violence each day. Please sign up for our SleevesUp donation drive and help us reach our goal, make and keep your appointment to give blood to the American Red Cross.

What your donors are up to...

Take a photo of yourself donating blood and share it! Just use #WearOrange
