Each year the third week of June is declared National Mosquito Control Awareness Week by the American Mosquito Control Association. AMCA’s “Mosquito Week” aims to educate the public about the significance of mosquitoes in their daily lives and why mosquito control is so important. While Mosquito Joe thinks educating our neighbors on mosquito control is important year round, we’re excited to mark this important week each year by giving back to our community.
For the third year, during Mosquito Control Awareness Week, June 21-27, Mosquito Joe locations across the country are partnering with local blood donation centers for our Beat the Bloodsuckers campaign. For every new customer that signs up for a mosquito treatment service from participating Mosquito Joe locations, we will donate 10% of those sales to local blood donation centers to help with all the amazing work they do in the communities where we operate.
Additionally, since many of our franchisees are partnering with the American Red Cross, we decided to take our efforts one step further this year with a blood drive. Mosquitoes are collecting blood from us and our friends every day without asking, but we’d rather be donating blood to a better cause. The Red Cross has to collect 15,000 blood donations every day to have enough blood to help patients in 2,700 hospitals and transfusion centers across the country. That’s a lot of patients in need, and all of us coming together can help ensure patients receive life saving blood. We are hoping you’ll pledge to donate blood with us and Beat the Bloodsuckers. Click here and check out our virtual blood drive and campaign as we encourage people to donate blood in honor of Mosquito Control Awareness Week.
If you donate blood during our campaign, post it to Twitter or Facebook and tag @mosquitojoe and hashtag #beatthebloodsuckers. We can’t wait to see all the great things this campaign is going to do in communities across the country. If you or someone you know needs mosquito control treatment in their yard, Mosquito Control Awareness Week is a great time to signup! 10% of sales from new customers will be going to a local blood bank in your community. To inquire about having a representative come and speak about mosquito control at your event this month, contact Julie Green at [email protected]. Thanks for helping us reach our goal and Beat the Bloodsuckers!
