Calling all new and existing blood donors! In times of need, we show up. We make sacrifices to help people we know, and people we don’t. And right now, patients across Canada need donors more than ever.
To give like lives depend on it — because they do. All blood types are needed. Everyone who can is encouraged to donate. Ask a family member, friend or colleague to book an appointment to donate at the same time as you. Together, physically distant, you can make donating blood a new meaningful tradition.
Reminder: Making an appointment is necessary. Keeping it is crucial. Missed or cancelled appointments are difficult for us to fill since we can longer replace you with a ‘walk-in’ donor. Every donation counts. If you find that an event is initially full, please save the date and keep checking back. Same day appointments are often available – in fact, we’ve been seeing a high number of last minute cancellations on the day of the clinic so there are often open appointments that can be booked on the morning of the event.
Every donation appointment this spring needs to be filled. Without the ongoing dedication of blood donors, patients in Canada wouldn’t have access to lifesaving care where and when they need it.
