Upon President Obama's inauguration, I decided to answer his call to service. I launched the National Cesar E. Chavez Blood Drive Challenge, an annual event held on Mr. Chavez's birthday, March 31.
In 2009, 42 universities participated. We expect more than 120 universities to participate in 2010, and we hope to reach more than 10,000 new donors!
The National Cesar E. Chavez Blood Drive Challenge supports the following objectives:
We are all volunteers and our organization has been a 501C3 since 2002. We would like to connect with potential partner organizations to further our reach, maximize our effectiveness, grow our expertise, and conduct adequate research on our event's ability to effect donor behavior through social identity in the Latino/Hispanic community.
