We would like to thank all of the platelet donors, volunteers, staff, fans and supporters that came out during the week of April 16-20 to help make the Platelets for Playoffs campaign a success. Through a partnership with the Los Angeles Kings and Children’s Hospital Los Angeles, we encouraged platelet donations for a chance to win playoff tickets or a lunch with L.A. Kings goalie, Jonathan Quick.

Bailey and the L.A. Kings Ice Girls were on site to help encourage new platelet donors. And through Platelets for Playoffs, you helped us reach the following goals:  

  • 46 platelet donors
  • 38 donors gave double to triple units
  • Over 90 children will be helped through these donations
  • Gained over 2,200 new @ChildrensLA Twitter followers

Thank you all for the support in saving the lives of our patients!
