Blood Donation by Sikh Nation

October 31, 2018

To: All MoveUP members

Every year in November, the Sikh Nation (Sikh Quom) around the world reaches out and embraces the vision that all humans should live a safe and happy life. In 1984, Sikhs across India were the victims of aggression and unprecedented attacks on innocent civilians. In remembrance of the events of 1984 and of the 30,000-plus victims and casualties suffered, the Sikhs created the Blood Donation Campaign in 1999.

The first blood donation clinics took place in the Lower Mainland, and now spans across Canada and worldwide. Since its conception, the Sikh Blood Donation Campaign has saved more than 120,000 lives. In addition to the blood drive, at 6 p.m. on November 1, a moment of silence is held.

MoveUP invites and encourages all our members to participate in this humanitarian campaign.
