Join Pure Barre, Gossip & Glamour and Seattle Met style editor Amanda Zurita for the "Mine for Cline" Bone Marrow Donation Drive this Saturday, December 6th. Amanda's five-year-old nephew Cline suffers from a rare blood disorder that causes him to have a depleted immune system putting him at an extremely high risk for illness. That means no school, no playgrounds, no restaurants, no typical kid activities and no hope for a happy, healthy future without a life saving bone marrow transplant. This is where YOU come in. We're hosting a special bone marrow donation drive at three Puget Sound Pure Barre Locations in an effort to get people registered as potential bone marrow donors for Cline and others out there who are waiting on a life-saving transplant. Getting registered is easy, you'll fill out some paper work, swab your cheek and in a few months' time find out if you're a match for Cline, or anyone else on the list. Despite the fact that there are nearly 11 million people on the registry Cline has still not found a match. Help us give hope this holiday season by getting signed up. #MineforCline volunteers will be at the Queen Anne, Green Lake and Bellevue locations ready and waiting to help answer questions and get people signed up. Pure Barre will be doing prize pack giveaways and the first 100 people to sign up and get swabbed will receive a special Mine for Cline hair tie. Come out to support this great cause and help us find a match!
