KEEP A WATER BOTTLE HANDY

Here’s a piece of advice that’s easy and efficient: Always try to keep a reusable bottle or cup of water with you throughout the day. If you’re one of those people who has trouble remembering to drink as much water as you should, having a bottle near you will help keep it at the top of your priorities list. Plus, refills are free.

Link Development

10 Blood Champions made Link Development campaign a success story for the Triple Effect. Using their expertise in technologies promoted the Blood drive in a totally pioneering way!

They actually linked each blood donor with a specific time for donation – so to save time and lives, of course! The schedule with the number of each chair was sent to the employees and also a small updating message with the blood lives saved every hour! Red balloons and posters were placed in and the blood champions were engaging people to come and cheering for the ones that donated.. 75 donors came to donate, 55 blood bags were collected and the society will be always grateful for the 165 lives that Link Development saved.

Tap into the many health benefits of meditation!

Mediatation relaxes the mind and leaves receptive to new things and fresh approaches.

Sit comfortably, totally supported by cushions, blankets, chairs etc. Close your eyes and focus on your breathing. Take your mind through your body and watch your breath relax each and every limb.

Start at your feet and when the breath reaches the top of your head, bring your breath back into the room, open your eyes and get on with your day – cool and calm!

AstraZeneca – an inspiring success for the second year in a row!

Astrazeneca cycle meeting

Astrazeneca cycle meeting

The Triple Effect team was honoured to be part of AstraZeneca’s Annual Cycle Meeting, for the second time in the history of our collaboration. It was a big event and took place in Cairo and Alexandria during January 2013. We ran two blood drives and at the same time we had the chance to introduce our Health Program. During the breaks, healthy challenges took place and the attendees had the opportunity to test their knowledge with a series of “healthy quizzes”.  The will of people to contribute in the Triple Effect was really inspiring! We can’t wait for our next event with AstraZeneca.
