"Although blood transfusions are almost never required along with cosmetic surgery procedures, health and beauty simply go hand in hand. Giving back in such an easy, but effective way is the hallmark of inner beauty."
Prague, Czech Republic (PRWEB) March 19, 2011
Understanding that timeless beauty also calls for enduring health, the professionals at Beauty in Prague recently played host to a charity blood drive that enjoyed a turnout much greater than even organisers expected.
“We were completely blown away with the turnout this event received,” said Tamara Zdinakova, Beauty in Prague’s managing director. “We reached out through Facebook and LinkedIn and were able to collect more than 17,550 ml of lifesaving blood.”
Beauty in Prague is a company dedicated to helping others book and enjoy cosmetic surgery packages abroad. It facilitates holiday travel packages that include cosmetic surgery procedures, accommodations and more. While beauty is its primary focus, the connection to good health is undeniable, Zdinakova said.
Although blood transfusions are almost never required along with cosmetic surgery procedures, Zdinakova said the idea for the drive was inspired by a desire to give back to the community while facilitating a way for others to do so, as well.
“Blood is simply crucial for good health and it is often in short supply when people need it the most,” she explained. “We felt by promoting the benefits of giving, we could reach out and help those around us.”
According to medical statistics, every pint of whole blood donated through drives such as Beauty in Prague’s can help three other people. This means the Dec. 6 event had an impact on 111 people in need of blood products for lifesaving procedures.
“It seemed like such a natural fit with what we do at Beauty in Prague,” said Zdinakova. “Good health and beauty simply go hand in hand. Giving back in such an easy, but effective way is the hallmark of inner beauty.”
Donors who turned out to one of the five collection sites to support the cosmetic surgery facilitator’s drive were registered into a drawing to receive a chance to win a variety of prizes. Those prizes included such items as dinner for two at the Hard Rock Café Prague, a bottle of Carmen Carmenere, a bottle of Carmen Chardonnay Reserve 2007, tickets for two for cooking classes at Chefparade and much more.
