This past summer my friends’ little boy, ‘Odd Socks’ Ollie, died from JMML, a form of childhood leukemia. In his honour, I have set up a Canadian Blood Services ‘Partners for Life’ blood donation team. If you have ever thought about donating blood, or have done so in the past and just need a reason to get back into it, please consider joining the team.
There’s a clinic at St Aidan’s Church (in the Beach, near my office) on September 25th, plus I organize regular blood drives at the Manulife Centre downtown. More info at our Facebook page.
As you can imagine, this is super important to me. Your support and participation would be appreciated, and very meaningful to thousands of Canadians, including little kids like Ollie, who need blood transfusions due to cancer, surgery, emergencies, etc. Visit www.Blood.ca to sign up now, and feel free to get in touch with me if you need any help.
