One of my favourite quotes is: “You cannot do a kindness too soon, for you never know how soon it will be too late” (Ralph Waldo Emerson). On November 13th, you can do a KIND act for World Kindness Day in Vancouver, here’s how:
A KIND Act for World Kindness Day in Vancouver
Where: Canadian Blood Services (4750 Oak St, Vancouver)
When: November 11-15, 2019 from 11:00am to 6:00pm
KIND Healthy Snacks and Canadian Blood Services are partnering up this World Kindness Day. Every individual who visits a Canadian Blood Services donor centre from November 11 to 15, 2019 will receive a KIND bar. On November 13th, KIND representatives will be sponsoring relaxation lounges at select donor centres in Toronto (2 Bloor Street East, Hudson Bay Centre) and Vancouver (4750 Oak St, at Oak and 32nd, next to BC Women’s and Children’s Hospital).
TIP: On the day of your donation, make sure you are hydrated, feeling well, and had a good night’s sleep. Remember to bring a valid ID, your donor card (if you have donated before) and any prescription medication you are currently taking.
Donating blood is the kindest thing an individual can do to help someone in need, yet only 4% of eligible donors sustain the Canadian blood system. By giving blood and joining Canada’s lifeline, Canadians will have the power to change someone’s life, with just a small amount of time. The impact of this single kind act is significant, as half of all Canadians will either need blood or know someone who will need blood to survive.
I’ll see you in the KIND relaxation lounge on November 13th! Follow KIND (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram) #snackKIND and Canadian Blood Services (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram) for more information.
