I'm so proud of DaddyBoy. Yesterday after work he went and did what we've been talking about for so long - donate blood. They took a pint, which can save up to three lives. I really hope it does. How wonderful that something that's good for yourself can also be a huge benefit to others.
Some facts from the Canadian Blood Services website:
Who Needs Blood?
Approximately every minute of every day, someone in Canada needs blood. In fact, according to a recent poll, 52 per cent of Canadians say they, or a family member, have needed blood or blood products for surgery or for medical treatment.
The good news is that one blood donation - in just one hour - can save up to three lives.
(One unit of blood is the equivalent to one donation)
And, as their ad says, It's in you to give!
DaddyBoy's my shining star!
