Objective Blood Donors and Pink Force Day
The Blood Donors Association of Gipuzkoa is an organization with deep roots in the historical territory of Gipuzkoa.
The transfusion of blood or its derivatives has become an essential part of today's health care, in order to attend to multiple pathologies and surgical procedures on a daily basis. The increase in life expectancy, the creation of intensive medicine units, and the important and constant needs of some patients, previously considered irrecoverable, mean that the demand for blood is growing.
Throughout these more than 55 years of operation, the Gipuzkoa Association has had more than 100,000 donors and has made more than 1,250,000 donations.
The Donors Association wants to link the Star Wars force with young people, encouraging them to become donors. At the same time, they would like young people to participate more actively in donation, since it is important to renew the pool of donors both to keep the number of donations stable and to maintain the quality of the plasma obtained.
For the Donors it is a holiday, whose objective is to recognize and celebrate the work of donation, so no extractions will be performed that day. The Donors association joins the Ambassadroid movement by participating in its first international membership meeting, which will be attended by Albin Johnson, Honorary President of The Pink Force Foundation and founder of the 501st Legion, an international association of Star Wars fans with more than 14,000 members worldwide.
In recognition of the work of the Donors we will have their participation in the solidarity march and they will have preferential access to the photocall area.
Our intention is that the event will be a mix of open and shared activities with society: Concert that will include a talk by Albin Johnson, Solidarity Walk, Photocalls, Donation information table, R2KT units, ...
