My name is Manya Jain, a Grade 11 student in Hangzhou International School (HIS). I have always found that helping others really does make me happy. To use this strength, I will be hosting my third Blood Donation Camp on Oct. 19th, 2021 (8.30 am to 4 pm) at the main entrance of HIS.

Living in this city for about 16 years makes it my duty to show my appreciation to this community that has brought me up. A blood donation doesn't only help the community as a whole, but each individual as well, in terms of their health awareness.

Since the first time I planned this event, I named it "Give Back". This is the first phrase that comes to mind when realizing how much my community and Hangzhou has done for me. Giving an opportunity for everyone to offer gratitude to our city brings a sense of togetherness and belonging.

I have connected with the Zhejiang Blood Center, who will bring their bus and teams of nurses to the school. Working alongside of them has been a pleasure and allowed me to get inspired from their good deeds to this community. I want to thank everyone who has and will support me for this event, because every contribution counts.

It is important to make sure you carry your passport or Chinese ID and have already eaten food before donating blood. You cannot donate blood if you have tattooed or operated within a year or have been drinking alcohol 24 hours before donating blood.

So please, come to Hangzhou International School on Tuesday, Oct. 19th, to provide to this community of ours.
