Thank you to everyone who has worked with us over the past months – signing up, organising donor drives and sharing the BMDP mission with friends and colleagues that everyone has “the power to save a life”.
With your support we reached our 2012 target TODAY with 5,000 new donors all signed up to the BMDP register bringing us several steps closer to delivering on our promise to find a donor for every patient.
Aven Lim, Business Analyst from Bayer HealthCare Pharmaceuticals was our 5,000th donor for the year – and he got first-hand congratulations from another new donor, Marcus Yim, MD of Bayer South ASEAN.
Many thanks to Bayer for hosting today’s event and also for generously sponsoring the cost of tissue typing each of your staff who signed up. Also, thank you again to all our other partners who have supported the Match For Life campaign over recent months; from the universities and polytechnics, the global and local partners – none if this would have been possible without your belief, encouragement and buy-in to our cause.
CONGRATULATIONS to all our Match For Life team and our extended family of BMDP donors. Roll on 2013 – another target and more lives to save.
Our Match for Life campaign will kick off at Hill & Knowlton Strategies’ on 1 October 2012 and throughout the rest of the month we’ll be rolling out at Citibank, SIngTel, GIC, Diageo and Rodyk and Davidson- to name a few.
If your organisation – or even your team – are keen to support our massive one-month donor recruitment initiative, then call us and get signed up.
Living up to our mission to find a donor for every patient, we aim to recruit AT LEAST 3,000 new donors during the month of October but we can’t do it alone. For small companies with less than 100 staff, a Match For Life event is a great way to build engagement and also get involved with a bigger mission supporting a life-saving local cause that plays out on a global stage.
Details of all donors are made available through a global network but the hunt for that perfect match always starts at home – and so the more Singaporean donors we have, the better chances of finding a match for our local patients.
Match for Life is a collaboration between the BMDP and the corporate sector and aims to take advantage of the communications infrastructure within each organisation to reach out and educate staff on the role they can play in saving a life.
Sharing a short video online can inform and inspire – and that’s what it’s all about. After all, how many people can say they signed up today to save a life.
Match for Life – JOIN US!
Signing up as a donor only takes a few minutes but the decision to donate is a commitment that could mean the difference between life and death.
