What is Amplify Austin?
Amplify Austin Day is our city’s annual community-wide day of online giving. The 24-hour period provides an easy and fun way for our entire community to give together while helping local nonprofits.
Why support We Are Blood?
We need more vehicles so we can draw more blood!
Our current buses are getting the job done… most days. But they’re old and tired and sometimes they break down. We hope to raise enough money to purchase a brand new bus — and all of the necessary medical equipment — so we can ensure we’re meeting the needs of our community.
The only problem: buses are EXPENSIVE. The bus (and medical equipment) will cost us somewhere north of $350,000. 😮
Our goal for 2019 is to raise $20,000 to help buy a new bus. With your help, we can hit that goal, and then some!
