Additional Comments / Outcome of the activity: 

Unfortunately we did not have any participants, but first of all during this season a lot of people are sick making them not suitable for a blood donation. Moreover people might be scared of needles, so they do not show up to such an event. Additionally donating blood is relatively complicated in Germany - you need to have a certain language level for example since the forms that are handed out are only in German and translating those is forbidden due to privacy reasons.

We still believe this to be a good event but we will try to improve it by having a tour of the hospital and giving more information of the importance of donating blood in the future in order to attract more people.
