About the Tree of Life Award
Volunteers who donate 100, 200, 300 or more red cell, platelet and plasma donations, reach significant milestones and receive recognition by having their names engraved on a leaf on a Tree of Life display. For many years only one Tree stood in the lobby of the Terry and Madison Center. Now our Tree of Life donors will be honored at the locations where they donate most often. Trees of Life are on display at all the Centers.
Donors earn this recognition over years of giving until their total donations reach 100. This total includes any whole blood, platelets, plasma and double red cells, and double unit apheresis donations count as two donations! Donations are not limited to those given at Puget Sound Blood Center. Those who give at other blood centers can have their lifetime totals adjusted to reflect their totals throughout their donation career. When the donor reaches this 100-unit milestone, he or she receives a pin, certificate and letter of commendation from the Blood Center.
If you know of a donor who should be added to the Tree of Life, please contact Donor Scheduling. We'll add them to the growing list (over 2000 strong) of Tree of Life donors.
About Tree of Life: 200, 300 and 400+ Unit Donors
Community. The meaning of this simple word is quite familiar to us all. For the following individuals, a sense of community has come to literally mean giving of themselves. Time and again, year after year, the people listed here have made hundreds of blood donations to ensure that others in our region may survive.
Puget Sound Blood Center is proud and pleased to acknowledge those generous people who have achieved a great milestone in their community: 200 units or more of whole blood, platelets and plasma (*whole blood only) donated to the community blood supply.
The Blood Center congratulates you for a remarkable achievement and thanks you! Each donor listed below has given over 200+ units of blood. For these people, community is a way of life.
