It's in you!

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!
