This coming weekend [ 5 - 7 August 2016 ] MBO Cinemas is continuing its third annual partnership with St John Ambulance of Malaysia to host a blood donation drive to contribute to the National Blood Centre (PDN). Organisers are expecting to reach the target of 5,000 pints of blood at this event, fondly known as Blood Donation Drive 3.0.
Taking place at 25 locations of MBO Cinemas nationwide from 12pm to 6pm on 5-6 August in Kedah and Johore plus 6-7 August for the rest of Malaysia, trained personnel from St John Ambulance of Malaysia will be on hand to assist the staff from PDN.
Apart from saving lives, blood donors will have additional reasons to participate as they will receive a goodie bag which consist of a free cinema ticket, MBO Cinemas movie merchandises, food, drinks and pharmaceutical gifts from our generous partners.
Mr Lim Eng Hee, CEO of MBO Cinemas said: " With this engaging charitable endeavour, MBO Cinemas hopes to further stamp our presence in the community, together with our core values of fun and entertaining, and yet a meaningful community work.
“This event will be a quintessential way of bringing people together under the banner of a common cause, promoting a sense of contribution and responsibility that in turn makes us all better human beings."
In return of St. John Ambulance continuous support, MBO Cinemas will donate RM10,000 as a token of appreciation for their assistance in this nationwide blood donation campaign.
Dr Noryati bt Abu Amin, Director of National Blood Centre added that contributions like this help save many lives every day and events like these are a wonderful way to raise awareness about the process of blood donation and how it is a great way to give back and help the community.
