Little Heros Blood Drive

Sep 27, 2021

There is probably nothing that pulls at the heart-strings more than a sick child or a child in need. Imagine getting the news that your child has cancer. Its tough for any parent to even think about that, let alone live it. Through the OneBlood organization and the Little Heros Campaign here in Charlotte, 40 mobile unit blood drives have been set up throughout the month of September (and into early October) to allow each of us to help save a child who may be fighting the battle of his life … or fighting for his life. Managing Director Ed Doughty and Financial Advisor Jason Dimitriou both donated their blood in honor of Liam Flynn, the young son of personal friend who is actually the one who helped to organize the month-long blood drive. Donating blood is such a simple way to “give”, but the results of your giving can literally help to save a life. We were grateful for the opportunity to give, and would encourage everyone to considering donating to the Little Heros Blood Drive. You can simply enter your zip-code and find a listing of all the remaining blood drives near year. Go to: Little Heros Blood Drive
