In partnership with the Philippine Red Cross, Fortune Life Insurance Company kicked off its Journey to 35 years celebration last July 23 with a bloodletting activity at the 20th floor Citystate Centre, Pasig City. It was held in July in support of the National Blood Donors Month.

The program began with the awarding of certificate of appreciation to Philippine Red Cross-Rizal Chapter represented by its Medical Officer, Ma. Lourdes T. Resurreccion, M.D. by EVP and General Manager Evelyn T. Carada. Among the registered participants were company employees and agents as well as representatives from Eastern Defender, Citystate Savings Bank, Fortune General, Fortune Care, Aliw Broadcasting and Eternal Plans. A total of eight beds were set up to accommodate the blood donors. The first 35 donors got to pick special prizes composed of corporate items. Some of the participants had fun taking their photos in our designated photo wall while some enjoyed the special merienda served in the afternoon as they watch the videos of Fortune Life’s previous events and ads.

With the activity’s theme “Be a hero, be a donor, Fortune Life aims to promote awareness of the benefits of donating blood and how one unit of blood can save hundreds of lives.
