Getting Started With Team Red

The first Job is to get the right people to come forward to join the Team red. If you have a CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) Team in your organization then you may invite them to be members of the team. The members of the HR (Human Resource) Team can also be approached directly. But the best thing to do will be to send an institution wide mail announcing the plan for the blood donation drive and asking the interested people to volunteer for the programme. Please find sample mails to invite people to join the team [THIS PAGE].

Once you have all the members of the Team Red identified you need to organize a meeting to assign the responsibilities and draw up a plan for the drive. It is wise to request for expert training to be provided during this meeting which will help people understand their roles in a better way. You can request for the training by expert volunteers Mail Us .
