Nearly 120 employees of leading digital entertainment company, DigiPlus Interactive Corp., volunteered as blood donors last June 10 in advance celebration of World Blood Donor Day.

As a fun twist to the blood-letting activity organized by the Philippine Red Cross and BingoPlus Foundation, the event was partnered with an employee engagement activity celebrating the Dragon Boat Festival – a traditional Asian holiday – coinciding on the same date.

“Our Human Resources department matched the blood donation drive with the Dragon Boat Festival to encourage employee engagement and make the activity more fun and significant. Just as dragon boat paddlers synchronize their movements to a drumbeat during the Festival, this blood donation drive signifies how volunteers can also make an impact when they move to one beat and purpose,” said Andy Tsui, Digiplus President and Bingoplus Foundation Chairman.

In the past year, BingoPlus Foundation implemented ten blood donation drives in partnership with the Philippine Red Cross to help address blood shortage in the country. This Blood Donation Activity is part of its advocacy on health and wellness, which aims to enable accessible healthcare for the communities it serves.


DigiPlus employees line up for medical screenings and the actual blood donation – an estimated 10% increase of employee volunteers from last year’s activity

Moving forward, the Foundation is keen to sustain its partnership with the Philippine Red Cross and help save more lives through blood donation drives and emergency response efforts.
