Blood is the perfect gift
It’s the season of giving and of miracles. Canadian Blood Services has launched its annual “Holiday Miracle” campaign and is counting on Canadians to help it collect more than 75,500 blood donations nationally, and 14,400 locally, to help meet hospital needs. “Holiday miracles do exist,” said Nancy Bryan, a partnership specialist with Canadian Blood Services.
“The generosity of one stranger to another in our clinics often means helping to save a stranger’s life.” Blood is a lifeline for many people during the festive season, including individuals living with leukemia, women who require blood products to save the life of their baby, or car accident victims.
A blood donation is the perfect gift. It costs nothing and it’ll give someone a miracle this holiday season.” B.C. residents can book a donation appointment by visiting www.blood.ca or calling 1-888 2 DONATE (1-888-236-6283).
Upcoming clinics in the Langley area include:
• Dec. 31, 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. – Murrayville Hall, 21667 48 Ave.
• Jan. 5, 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. – Blacklock Fine Arts Elementary, 5100 206 St.
