Dear Alaska Blood Donor and BBA Supporter,
Thank you for your support in 2018. For 56 years, Blood Bank of Alaska, in partnership with you, has put Alaskans first. Your donations have helped all Alaskans to include military personnel across the state, as well as the many visitors we have from the Lower 48.
The process of blood banking is complex. Typically, Alaskans do not consider the complicated logistics involved in ensuring the blood is tested, transported and standing ready in the most remote locations in Alaska. There is a lot that cannot be left to chance in our efforts to save lives, and involves a great deal of flawless logistical management. Thanks to you, and the staff at Blood Bank of Alaska, Alaskans do not have to wonder if blood is available regardless where in the state they may be when they or a loved one needs it; because it is there when needed 24/7. Come rain, or shine, blizzard, flood, distance or earthquake. The blood or blood product is there.
Ensuring the complicated logistics involved is a costly endeavor. We are writing you to ask you our dedicated blood donor to go an extra step for us this year. Would you please consider a year-end financial donation to help us defray the cost of our efforts to serve Alaska? Any amount will help, Blood Bank of Alaska is a nonprofit 501 (c)(3) organization.
We ask a lot of you through the year in our mission to save lives together, we hope you will also consider a financial contribution as well. Make a difference in the last 24 hours of 2018 and make your year-end donation. Thank you for your help.
We wish you a very happy and safe New Year!
