Buddy the Blood Drop has been working overtime this week, pounding the pavement at the University of Oregon, temporary home of the 2013 Civil War Blood Drive.
Buddy danced. Buddy waved. Buddy shuffled. Buddy herded donors into the EMU, where they could vote for the Ducks or the Beavers while registering to donate blood and save lives.
He has withstood wind and rain and disinterested college students, all the while maintaining his pleasant attitude and goofy smile.
And it’s been paying off. Hundreds of donors have filtered in the doors of the Fir Room at the EMU to roll up their sleeves and give the most precious gift of all: Life.
You can join them. We will be on campus today and tomorrow (Nov. 14-15), so swing by if it’s convenient.
The 12th Annual Civil War Blood Drive continues through Nov. 24. Donate at any of our mobile blood drives or at Lane Blood Center and cast your vote for the Ducks or the Beavers. You’ll be entered for a chance to win a pair of tickets to the Civil War game at Autzen Stadium. Click here for up-to-date scores.
