Often when people think of donating to a noble cause they think of dollar signs, however we all have much more to offer our fellow man than cash. Canadian Blood Services has launched a campaign to encourage those who have received blood to share their story and thank their donor through the power of the internet.

Thank Your Donor …lets recipients of blood, platelets, plasma or stem cells to say “Thank You” to their donors and attract new people to give blood by sharing their stories. Every donation given can save up to three lives. Find out how these gifts have made a difference to lives of people in your community.

If you or a loved one received a donation in a time of need, you’re encouraged to share your story (text, photo or video) on the website.

With that in mind, there are numerous clinics around Vancouver where you can give blood and the Thank Your Donor initiative is nation-wide. Also, Canadian Blood Services does accept monetary donations for those who would like to help make a difference by other means.
