Things that hurt more than giving blood

New York Blood Center Enterprises Teams up with Markham Yard to Teach a New Generation How Easy it is to Give Blood

This marketing campaign will run in NYBCe’s regional markets across the country, including New York, Delaware, Missouri and Kansas

NEW YORK June 14, 2021: New York Blood Center Enterprises (NYBCe) has selected Markham Yard after a review for a regional campaign to bolster blood donation efforts in the post-COVID era.

The Markham Yard team will craft an integrated campaign to show a new generation of potential donors not only how important it is to adopt good blood donation habits, but how easy it can be. The campaign begins today to coincide with World Blood Donor Day, running regionally in New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Rhode Island, Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, Pennsylvania, Missouri, Kansas, Minnesota and Nebraska.

Andrea Cefarelli, Senior Executive Director, Recruitment and Marketing at NYBCe notes, “The Markham Yard team did a great job of translating the data into a strategic and creative campaign that is unconventional, engaging and impactful. We look forward to collaborating with them to bring this to life in order to augment our critically-needed supply of blood and plasma across the country.”

“There is no substitute for human blood. This life-giving essence is in short supply, partially because the median age of blood donors is rising steadily, and partially because COVID has sharply curtailed the ability to donate. We look forward to working with the NYBCe team to show a new generation how easy it is to help,” said Markham Cronin, Founding Partner at Markham Yard.

Billings are undisclosed, and work will begin to appear in each market in early summer of this year.
