So you want to take the #bloodyawesomechallenge but don’t know where to start?! There are WAY too many websites for me to hook you up with in this post, but I will list a few for Canada, the USA, the UK and Australia at the end of this post. If you want to provide websites for people living in other parts of the world, please feel free to do so in the comments of this post. (Please note that it will take a bit for us to approve the link, but we will do that shortly after you comment!)
You can also Google the following:
“Blood donation” + your country… so for me, I googled “Blood donation Canada”
“Bone marrow and stem cell donation” + your country… so I google “Bone marrow and stem cell donation Canada”
“Blood cancer organization websites” + your country… so I google “Blood cancer organization websites Canada”
You get the gist… I hope. If not, please feel free to contact us and we will do our best to link to in the right direction.
We realize that not everyone is a good candiate for donating bone marrow, stem cells or blood. We also realize that some people cannot donate money either. However, please keep in mind that sharing the BLOODY AWESOME CHALLENGE on social media is an awesome way to participate too! Make sure you use the hashtag #bloodyawesomechallenge when posting a video, photo or status too!!
