Kin Canada’s Blood Donation Efforts
Kin Canada is a National Partner for Life with Canadian Blood Services (CBS), the not-for-profit that manages Canada’s blood supply in all provinces and territories outside of Québec. According to CBS, only 4% of Canadians donate blood, yet up to half of us will either need it or know someone who will need it their lifetime.
From heart surgery that can require up to 5 donors to car accident victims who may need 50, donating blood is truly a gift of life. Consider joining us in our efforts to meet this vital need.
Our clubs help address and advocate the need for blood donors through awareness initiatives and donating blood, often setting up group appointments to donate together.
We pledged 615 blood donations from our members, family and friends in 2017. We are pleased to announce that we ended the year at 164% of our goal, with 1010 units of blood! Compared to 2016, we had 45% more registered donors and donated 61% more units!
In 2018 we pledge to donate 725 units of blood and are currently at 85% of this goal.
