Approximately every minute of every day, someone in Canada needs blood, according to Canadian Blood Services. In fact, according to a recent poll, 52 per cent of Canadians say they or a family member have needed blood or blood products.

But there is good news. One blood donation — which takes just one hour — can save a life.
