Talking back to hate

I pledge to be a voice for respect and acceptance, and to take action with others in my school, workplace, home, community, or place of worship to create a more safe, accepting, and inclusive environment. I will stay alert to all forms of hate speech and discrimination in my area and take steps to prevent and discourage these acts of hate. As part of my pledge, I commit to pay attention to my speech on a daily basis and to reflect on how my thoughts and words affect my actions and interactions with others.
How About You?

The Women for Cancer Blood Drive 7th – 11th August 2013

Blood Drive Event

Join Us as we make Cancer See Red!
The Women for Cancer Blood Drive 7th – 11th August 2013
The facts:-
·         Approximately 7.6 Million people globally died of cancer in 2005 and an estimated 84 million will die by 2015 if action is not taken.
·         More than 70% of cancer deaths occur in low & middle-income countries, where there are limited resources for prevention, diagnosis and treatment.
·         80% of reported cases of cancer are diagnosed at advanced stages, yet 30% of treatable cancers can be cured if detected early.
The Blood Drive has been initiated because there is a massive shortage of blood for transfusion in Kenya. Weekly, Nairobi County requires 1400 pints, but only gets approximately 77% of this per week. 
Because of this shortage, priority is given to casualty patients, child bearing mothers and other “urgent” cases...cancer patients who require blood transfusion before receiving their chemotherapy treatment are often not a priority.
In Kenya, 80% of current blood donors are students. With the school holidays in August, the blood bank deficit will definitely be higher. Help us reduce this deficit by participating in our blood drive. Our younger brothers and sisters are playing their part and so should we. By donating blood, you are giving a cancer patient a fighting chance. Join us in getting others to act now! 
Invite all your friends, workmates, colleagues, clients, family members & relatives for the blood drive. 
·         7th – 10th August 2013 at the August 7th Memorial park (Bomb Blast area) 10:00am to 5:00pm daily
·         11th August 2013 the Family Fun Day on 11th August 2013 at Arboretum Grounds 10:00am to 6:00pm
You can also participate by donating items that we require to make it a success. For more information on how you can participate, please contact us on our numbers below or email info@women4cancer.org
