Interested in saving a life today?
I’m just going to assume that your answer is yes, since you are such a kind and considerate human being. You could save up to two in just under an hour!
This year I am participating in Canadian Blood Services “Assignment Saving Lives” which is a scholarship program that gets students to motivate others to donate blood in the summer months, when donations are typically lower. The student with the most donations under their name will win a $1500 bursary.
All you have to do is sign up online before your donation, and then head off to any Canadian Blood Services location (2571 Broad Street in Regina) and give them a little bit of your time and of course a bit of your blood. It really is one of the easiest things you can do.. all you have to do is sit there, and someone will feed you juice and snacks!
Scared of needles you say? Try to place yourself in the shoes of someone going through chemotherapy, who requires up to 8 bags of blood in just one week. Or perhaps think of a premature baby requiring blood transfusions the moment they enter in to this world. Can you be the braver person and confront your fear of needles in order to help those in desperate need?
Signing up is pretty simple. Just visit www.blood.ca/partnersforlife and click on “Join Partners for Life”. Click on the “Member” puzzle piece and then follow the link that says “Sign me up to donate with my team”. Fill out the form with your information and use Partner ID# RAND012880. Click yes when asked if you are a Member of the Organization. There. That’s it! You’re now registered with my team. Now all you need to do is call 1-888-2-Donate to book an appointment or book online at blood.ca! All donations in the months of June, July and August will count towards my scholarship.
I would really appreciate your donations, not only to give me a chance at a scholarship, but to help save the lives of many people in need. If you have any questions regarding Assignment Saving Lives, or would like to know how you can get involved with Canadian Blood Services feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
PS… If you donate for me in early June you will be qualified to donate again after 52 days. That means you can donate again in August and I will get a second donation under your name!
