We first met Joe when we were in ITE College West in 2016. Upon learning about what we do and who we help, he immediately resonated with the cause and signed up as a marrow donor. But this thoughtful action did not end there. Joe felt that he needed to do more to help.
Being in charge of the school’s Rotaract Club, Joe took the opportunity to get the student club members involved in our cause as part of their service project. He had since organised a yearly learning journey for 6 groups of students to head down to our office for them to learn more about our operational works in greater depth. Under his guidance, the Rotaract Club has been organising annual donor drives in school, raising awareness amongst the teachers and students, as well as recruiting close to 2,000 marrow donors.
We’re thankful for individuals like Joe and hope for a continued collaboration with the school in years to come.
Thank you, Joe!
It was during a huge turnout at our booth at Nee Soon GRC when Kenneth voluntarily stepped in and lent us a helping hand by engaging the residents who came by. To see him reaching out and spreading the word of our cause while we were overwhelmed was heartening. Turns out, Kenneth had already signed up as a marrow donor some time back and wanted to do more to help!
“When I became aware of the register, I thought to myself, ‘What little can I do to potentially make a huge impact to someone?” Kenneth said.
We then introduced him to the Ambassador Programme – an initiative that gathers volunteers to actively spread BMDP’s life-saving message. It did not take long for him to get onboard and before we knew it, he was already proposing some ways that he could contribute in our awareness efforts. Some of these include bridging us with the Singapore Veterinary Association as well as leveraging on his clinic to share educational materials on marrow donation. He had also encouraged his family and friends to join us in our cause.
Thank you, Kenneth!
