On March 22, 2018 in Paris, GNBD member Jean-Claude Brocart had the pleasure of presenting my Blood for Others at length to RI President Ian RISELEY. The 2 Governors of the Paris region were present as well as representatives of the French Blood Establishment
The figures of 350,000 donors welcomed in France since 1998 by several thousand Rotarians have impressed the RI President. Mr. Riseley was interested to learn that Toulouse collection is the largest in Europe. A friendly and fruitful discussion took place and Mr. Riseley noted the wish to see Rotary position itself as a major player in blood donation around the world. The adoption of a name common to all our collections (My Blood For Others) would be a strong lever of communication and visibility
