Last year Ahmadiyya Muslim Community USA set out to collect 10,000 units of blood on the 10th year anniversary of Sep 11, 2001. This effort was huge success. The final units collected count was well above the goal. In Georgia alone, the final count of units collected was 1225. AMC-Georgia partnered with LifeSouth and Red Cross on several drives in providing volunteers and in others by hosting drives. We are grateful to all those who donated and helped us exdeed the goal.
The Second Muslims for Life campaign was kicked off on 11th August, 2012. It will run through 11th September, 2012. The first Georgia drive will be on the occasion of Eid (a Muslim celebration following fasting of Ramadhan) on Aug 19, 2012 in Lucky Shoals Park in Norcross.
