by - September 03, 2018


International Cabin Attendant Training School (ICATS) in partnership with the Philippine Red Cross will hold its 2nd bloodletting event that aims to promote awareness about blood donation and its importance in preserving life.


Happening this September 28, 2018, ICATS Donate Blood Save  L.I.F.E Campaign will start at 9 a.m. at Unit 907-A East Tower of the Philippine Stock Exchange Center along Exchange Road, Ortigas Center, Pasig City. For this year the theme is “Share the gift of life.”

“The event is part of our corporate social responsibility and is our way of giving back to the community. We invite everyone to join this worthwhile endeavor. This is your chance to help others and feel good at the same time,” according to Lou Aseron, ICATS marketing head.

In addition to getting a free medical checkup and knowing their blood type, hemoglobin level, and blood pressure, donors will receive freebies and giveaways. Prior to donating blood, they will be interviewed and examined to know if they are qualified. Free food and souvenirs will also be provided during the event.

What’s more, donors will automatically join the raffle draw and get a chance to win P5,000 worth of gift vouchers from Aliah Travel and Tours. Guests will have until 5 p.m. to submit their donor vouchers that serve as their raffle coupons at the front desk. Three lucky winners will be drawn at 5:30 p.m.

Donors must be between 18 to 60 years old, weigh at least a 110 pounds or about 50 kilograms, and have a normal body temperature. They should have a blood pressure of 90 – 160/60 - 100 mmHg and a pulse rate between 50 to 200 beats per minute. They must also pass a routine check for hemoglobin. Teenagers as young as 16 can donate blood if they are allowed by their parents.

“Have enough rest and at least five hours of sleep if you intend to donate blood. Avoid alcohol 12 to 24 hours before the procedure and no surgery within the year or body piercing or tattoos for the last 12 months. Donors must be physically healthy with no sexually transmitted diseases,” Aseron explained.
