Hosting Blood Drives with the American Red Cross
CPA Sue Ann Ma has led Seminal Financial Group, Inc., in Houston, Texas, as president since 2001. With nearly two decades of leadership experience, Sue Ann Ma enjoys sharing her knowledge with newcomers to her field. Away from work, she spends time supporting the American Red Cross.
The American Red Cross provides a number of global disaster relief and emergency services. The organization’s many worldwide efforts would not be possible without the help of charitable donations and a vast network of volunteers. One of the easiest, most effective ways to help the organization involves donating blood or hosting an American Red Cross blood drive.
Individuals who make regular or one-time donations allow the Red Cross to maintain one of the world’s most reliable blood supplies. Any person interested in becoming more involved in blood donation should visit www.redcross.org to learn about hosting a blood drive. Hosts are tasked with securing a location for the drive, recruiting and scheduling donors, and promoting the drive as much as possible. The Red Cross takes care of everything else, including providing medical equipment and screening donors.
