It's In You To Give

I was walking home along Danforth last night when I noticed a Canadian Blood Services sign pointing towards Toronto East General Hospital. I wouldn't normally post about this, but I was a little curious about the whole system of blood donation. Doing a little bit of research, I discovered that by the numbers, only 3.7% of eligible Canadians actually donate blood but 52% of the entire country actually needs blood for themselves or their family members.

I'm not sure how often they set up a mobile clinic at East General, but I thought it was worth noting for people who would actually like to donate.

The clinic runs from 12:00 to 4:00 p.m. on Tuesday, November 17. The Canadian Blood Services website says appointments preferred, but I think the sign said it was a walk-in.
