One Match Registration Event in Honour of Sarah – April 18

22 Mar

Brownridge Public School is hosting a OneMatch Stem Cell and Marrow Network registration event in Honour of Sarah on Thursday, April 18 from 2 p.m. – 8 p.m.  Less than 25% of patients who require a stem cell transplant will find a matching donor in their family.  That’s why there’s OneMatch.  OneMatch is currently looking to match 931 patients with a donor.   There is a special need for males, 17- 35 years of age to join the Network.  Another way to help patients in need is to donate blood. All stem cell patients will require blood. To learn more about donating stem cells or blood, please join us on April 18th.

At 8.30pm on Saturday March 23rd, 2013, millions of people around the world will turn out the lights for Earth Hour. This awareness movement is intended to get people talking about the importance of reducing human impact on the Earth. Below you will find lists of activities that you can do to save energy, reduce your impact on the environment, and help spread awareness about Earth issues such as climate change.

You don’t have to wait for the Earth Hour to try out some energy saving techniques. Please check out our Eco Schools page of the blog for tips…
