Rolling Sleeves to Help Indonesia's Disaster Victims

Bali Taxi Drivers Donate Blood, Help Orphans and Provide Scholarships to Celebrate an Important Anniversary.

(12/4/2010) 150 drivers of Bali Taxi left the steering wheels of their taxis for long enough on Saturday, November 27, 2010, to donate blood for use by Bali's central blood bank. The "blood drive" held at the central vehicle pool of the company in Jimbaran, marked the joint celebration of the 16th anniversary of the founding of Bali Taxi and the 20th anniversary of Golden Blue Bird.

As reported by Bisnis Bali, the hotel division manager of Blue Bird, Abdi Patria Sugata, said the program reflected the desire of the company's management and staff to assist the victims of recent natural disasters in Indonesia. Sugata said it was also their aim to introduce the practice of routine blood donations from the public, with many of those participating in their drive donating blood for the first time.

In addition to participating in the blood drive as a means to celebrate the companies' anniversaries, Bali Taxi also made donations to a local orphanage, donated scholarships for the children of company drivers and donated waste containers to help efforts to keep Bali "clean and green."
