It’s National Blood Donor Week, typically a time to celebrate donors across the country. This year though, Canadian Blood Services is focused on a critical need for blood donations and is urging Canadians to make an appointment to donate before July 1. Officials say they realize donors are very busy and have lots of demands on their time. This sometimes leads to blood donation dropping down the list of priorities. With the launch of National Blood Donor Week, Canadian Blood Services is urging Canadians to put blood donation at the top of their list of things to do.
During National Blood Donor Week, and over the summer long weekends, Canadian Blood Services is also offering a limited-edition Canada 150 collector pin to everyone who visits one of its clinics.
