Blood Drive

4,855 Hours

Share the Love, Blood Drive  was spearheaded by Ayala Multi-Purpose Cooperative in partnership with the Ayala Business Clubs as well as other groups in the company for the benefit of The Philippine Red Cross and National Kidney Institute.

“I’ve been donating blood twice a year for the longest time. I started doing this because my Lola got sick years ago and she needed a blood transfusion. All her grandkids donated and that was the first time I did it. If it saves a life at such little cost why not, so I’ve been doing it ever since.

Ayala has been around for 185 years and it has changed so many lives, so if I can contribute in my own little way through this, then why not.”
