Ingress is a game that aims to bring together people from many different walks of life and to unite them in a single cause. Staying true to that vision, the Sri Lankan Enlightened took upon themselves to organize and execute a cross-faction blood drive on the 17th of October, in recognition of the fact that 'Behind the Scanner is a Human Being'. The event took place at the National Blood Transfusion Center at Narahenpita in Colombo.
It was heartening to see many agents and even non-agents turn up to help this worthy cause, with a total of 39 agents from both factions donating blood. The Organizing Team had prepared refreshments and also a 'spin the wheel' game for donors which would allow them to win prizes in the form of Ingress inventory items - which gave an interesting Ingress-themed twist to the proceedings.
At the end of the day, the Ingress Blood Drive was a resounding success, and we would like to extend our heartiest thanks to all those who participated, as well as the kind and helpful staff of the National Blood Transfusion Center who helped make this event a success. Ingress is power in unity, and it is encouraging to see how willing the Sri Lankan Ingress Community is to use that unity for the good of the world.+Matilde Tusberti +Anne Beuttenmüller +John Hanke +Susanna Moyer #LinkedLives #RedFaction #BloodDonation #MissionsForGood #SriLanka #EnlightenedLK #IngressReport
