Goal of the event: 
Increase the number of blood donors in the name of ESN KISA and social Erasmus. Blood donors are needed every day! Patients (cancer, premature babies) needing blood depend on the help of blood donors.
Short description of the event: 
We organize blood donation events where we are going to visit Finnish Red Cross Blood Service (FRCBS) Kuopio in small groups. We additionally created an ESN KISA blood group where ESN KISA members can go to the blood service centre on their own to donate blood throughout the semester.
There are restrictions in who is eligible to donate blood (stated in the event). Refreshments will be given by the blood service centre.
Blood donations can save peoples life and are needed every day. Seriously ill patients depend on our help. With this event, we want to make people aware of this and give them the chance to help others, donate blood in an already organized fashion and easy way. All in all, we hope to increase the number of blood donations.
