That’s the number of blood donations required this year to meet hospital demand in Canada, according to Canadian Blood Services. Although one in two Canadians are capable of giving blood, only one in 60 gave blood last year.
I’m ashamed to admit that I haven’t given blood in years. How about you?
It’s National Blood Donor Week, so there’s no better time to help save a life. You can call 1 888 2 DONATE (1-888-236-6283) today to book an appointment.
Okay, I’ve just made the call. I’m booked to donate tomorrow at 12:40 p.m. Will you join me?
