On the 26th of February, the ‘Worldwide One-Two Blood Drive’ was held at the Philippine Blood Center in Quezon City. An official from WeLoveU said, “Blood donation, in itself, is already a noble act of love. But a voluntary, non-remunerated blood donation (VNRBD) –that is to donate blood without being paid, to willingly give your own blood for others without asking for anything in return– is a truly selfless act of compassion to save other’s lives. Let the member’s action today spread in the Philippines and even around the world.”

On this day, 280 people– consisting of WeLoveU members, families, and neighbors from all over Metro Manila– including Manila, Caloocan, Antipolo, Valenzuela, and Marikina practiced the noble act of saving lives. While being medically examined and having their blood drawn one by one, the participants not once failed to smile throughout the entire session.

These donors are modern-day heroes.”, expressing his gratitude toward the WeLoveU members who willingly participated in the event for neighbors whose lives are at risk due to blood shortage. The event began at 9:00 a.m. and continued until 5 p.m. A total of 280 participated with 231 registrants and 168 successful voluntary blood donors.
