Published by MNA on

How do we chip away at the stereotype that atheists are a bunch of unfeeling nihilists while helping our community at the same time? Charity work! We all give selflessly at one time or another, and now is our chance to do something collectively.

For those who can donate blood (a good rule of thumb is that if you are at least 16, weigh at least 110 lbs, 130 lbs if you are under 17, and are in good health, you can donate) we’ll be meeting at Memorial Blood Centers again. The times are the same, donations will happen between 10 AM and Noon. While you’re waiting, you can chat it up with fellow atheist donors. We’ll be giving out t-shirts to volunteers if you don’t have one already and heading for free pizza after the donations are done.

When you RSVP, if you could send your name, birth date, whether you have donated with Memorial Blood Centers before and phone number to giveback@mnatheists.org, we can pass that to them to speed the registration process along.

Some helpful information about blood:

We are always in search of good volunteer opportunities. Send your ideas to giveback@mnatheists.org. Also, if you want to stay up to date on the latest charity projects, you can send an email to giveback@mnatheists.org to receive updates.  For more specific information on this event, visit our Meetup site.
