Re: Blood inventory in critical condition

On behalf of Canadian Blood Services, I’d like to sincerely thank residents of this community who responded to our recent urgent appeal for blood.

When it really counted, you stepped up and helped ensure we could continue to meet patient needs across the country.

We are fortunate to have such dedicated donors, some of whom experienced longer donation times during this critical period.

Thanks to you, we are no longer in a critical situation. That doesn’t mean our work together stops here; the need for blood is constant.

We look forward to welcoming regular donors back again soon. If you’re a new donor, we hope you will consider making blood donation a regular part of your life.

We want donors to have the best experience possible. We’ve heard your suggestions and will continue to improve.

To begin, we’ve introduced Wi-Fi in our permanent clinics, created a new website that is mobile friendly, introduced a mobile app called GiveBlood and started publishing our weekly inventory online so it’s even easier for you to take action.

We have also introduced a new eligibility quiz to help you determine whether you can donate. To learn more, visit www.blood.ca.

Once again, thank you for your recent support and for helping to save or improve the life of a fellow Canadian.

Mark Donnison

Vice-President, Donor Relations

Editor’s note: The next Canadian Blood Services clinic in Ladysmith is Wednesday, Jan. 22  at St. Mary’s Catholic Church.
