Join Stanford Blood Center and Good Karma Bikes to Help Local Kids
This January 8 – 27, Stanford Blood Center (SBC) is partnering with Good Karma Bikes to boost awareness of blood donation and help local kids in the process. As part of our annual Give Good campaign, for every 15 people who come in to donate blood at an SBC center or mobile drive during this time period, Good Karma Bikes will donate a bicycle to a child in foster care or a single-parent shelter. Additionally, for each person who rolls up their sleeve, SBC will make a financial contribution to Good Karma Bikes. To close out the Give Good campaign, Good Karma Bikes will host a mobile drive on Saturday, January 27 at their store, located at 460 Lincoln Ave #15, San Jose .
