Save A Life!

If someone is in need of help, lend them a helping hand. Do not wait for a Thank You! Because, the hands that help are holier than the lips that Pray!

20 years ago, an altruistic soul named Dr. Putta Bore Gowda a professor in the M S Ramaiah Institute Of Technology, along with the National Service Scheme(NSS) took an initiative to help the people. They started the Blood Donation Camp and they have successfully organized 19 blood donation camps. This year they are setting up the 20th camp and we would like to encourage everyone of you to donate blood. It takes less than 40 minutes to donate 1 pint of Blood but it can save 3 lives.
Also donating blood is a way to stay healthy, it has its own benefits. It boosts the production of new blood cells, helps in weight loss, also decreases the risk of cancer and much more. And the best part is the satisfaction you gain when you realize how you important you can be for someone in need.
So guys, be there at M S Ramaiah Institute Of Technology on 29th November 2017, the camp will be organized from morning 10:00 to evening 5:00 in the ESB basement. A good number of blood banks such as Red Cross, Ramaiah, Victoria, Raj Kumar etc will be visiting the institute. A team of well qualified doctors will look before and after you donate blood. Everything will be done in a purely hygienic environment so you don't have to worry about it! Just remember that if you are found underweight, or you have a low haemoglobin count, if you have a tattoo or a piercing done recently you won't be eligible to donate blood.

We hope we have played little part by spreading the awareness about this noble cause. Now it's your turn to donate blood and be a hero I'm someone's life:)
Lastly congratulations to the NSS-MSRIT for starting such an amazing initiative and we wish you all the very best for the 20th camp good luck!

Bonus: You will be given a certificate stating that you have donated blood , and this certificate is very important because it can get you free blood in case of emergency. So be it your family/friends, you can show this certificate to the respective blood bank and they will provide you with a unit of required blood for free! Which otherwise could cost you some money!
