Haiti was struck by a major earthquake, knocking down buildings and power lines and inflicting what can be called a catastrophe for the Western Hemisphere’s poorest nation.
Blue Blood wants to offer a helping hand where they can. We therefore decided to donate 5% of the turnover of our Blue Blood stores on Saturday and donate it to the victims of Haiti.
If you wanna help the victims you can do so here (for Dutch visitors) or help through buying something in our stores on Saturday.
