    Welcome to the shiny new 2020 Tar Valon Blood Drive thread!!

    The Tower has had very dedicated blood donors ever since we first started the annual initiative in the aftermath of the 2013 Boston Marathon Bombing. I think it's incredibly important to honor our donors, and to inspire each other and our communities to continue donating when able. Blood banks all over the world are almost always in critical need of consistent donations. Every pint counts and is a precious tool used to save a life. Even if you cannot personally donate, I do believe individual promotion to our wider communities plays just as important a role in getting blood to patients. So spread the word! Wear our graphics! Promote blood donation! However you may be involved, we thank you for your dedication to this life-saving program year after year. :hug

    • Please feel free to donate as many times as you want throughout the year 2020! Simply come on back and fill out the form after each donation!
    • This year I also added a question for the people who do the "double red" donation at the end of the form. If you do a double red donation, please answer "yes" for this question so I can tally the pints properly.
    • The deadline to submit your 2020 forms will be January 10, 2121.

    Hey @Elia LePhant! Is there a deadline by which we need to donate or is anytime good? If anytime is good is there a possibility to donate more than once during the year? Thanks!

    Anytime during the calendar year counts, as long as you log it on the form. You can absolutely donate more than once in the year; please do! Just log each time separately.

    Yes! I will add those points to the first post. You may donate throughout the entire year of 2020, just come fill out a form after each donation. :D I think the deadline is very flexible - let's say January 10, 2121 so I can tally the forms for the annual report. :)

    Each pint can save up to three lives - thanks to everyone who donated!

    I've been seeing messages from my local blood bank that blood is needed more than ever because of COVID 19. Please donate if you can!

    Do you have a gmail account? You should be able to sign in with that.

    @Ajailyn Morrivinna did you try to fill the form out or did you click the pencil icon in the corner? You shouldn't have to sign in to just submit answers, I don't believe, but if you try to edit the form then it asks for permission.
