Today we had blood donation event at my office. About 50 staff involved and that was exclude people from outside. It really gave me a big smile on my face to see how concern people nowadays.
50 out of 300 staff. Not good enough.
When I asked some of them about why they don’t want to donate, they simply gave me a lot of reasons and excuses.
A: I’m afraid of needle.
B: I’ll faint.
C: I got a lot of diseases.
D: I took medicine yesterday.
… and some other possible excuses that could be applied.
To make the matter worse, our director didn’t allow us to go back 2 hours earlier as usual which made a lot of the staff complaint. Well, I don’t think it is a good idea to cancel at last minute like this. I’m afraid that the amount of donator will decrease next time. Not because going back early is the only reason people want to donate, even though if it is their reason, director should be proud that many of the staff willing to donate. I mean, how many of government companies do this and get as many staff as our company? I’m not bragging anything; just I speak on other people’s behalf which I heard from them after donating.
Who can poke his nose to make this thing clear? Er.
