    Blood Drive to Donate on the 5th of February 2013

    I am going to be making my 25th Blood donation on the 5th of February 2013 and since this is my first major milestone I would like to invite you all to come and join me on this day and donate with me.

    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 a life.
    It's an easy process and most of us are elegible to donate.

    Here is the criteria that will help determine if you are an eligible donor.

    Basic Eligibility
    Please note that this information is subject to change. Final eligibility determination rests with the screening staff at the donor clinic.

    Identification
    Identification with full name and signature, or full name and photograph required.

    Age
    To donate, you must be at least 17 years of age, in general good health, and feeling well on the day of your donation. If you have never donated before and have had your 61st birthday, or if you are between the ages of 67 and 71, and have not donated within the last two years, you must be assessed by a physician who must fill out and sign the following letter. You must also meet the other standard requirements for donation. To find out more, please call us at 1 888 2 DONATE.

    Weight
    At least 50 kg (110 lb). Are you between the ages of 17 and 23? Visit our Eligibility Calculator or call 1 888 2 DONATE for additional criteria.

    Frequency of Donation
    Minimum interval between blood donations is 56 days.

    Health
    In general good health and feeling well. You should have had something to eat and adequate sleep. You must also meet hemoglobin (iron) requirements (test done at clinic).

    Screening
    At the time of donation, you will be asked a number of questions to determine your eligibility. For example:

    If You Have: You Must Wait Before Donating:
    Had dental treatment (extractions, fillings, cleaning, restoration)
    For cleaning or filling: until the day after treatment
    For extraction, root canal or dental surgery: 72 hours provided there is full recovery
    A cold, flu or sore throat
    Full recovery
    Had ear or body piercing or tattooing
    6 months
    Donating blood does not put you at risk of disease. All needles are sterile, used only once and discarded. The usual blood collection - a "unit" - is about half a litre, or one pint. Your body soon replaces all the blood you donate
    I typically donate at:

    BOYS AND GIRLS CLUB OF BRANTFORD
    2 EDGE STREET
    BRANTFORD

    Time: 6:00 PM

    it takes about an hour.

    for more information about donating blood, elegibility or if you just need to find a location closer so you can donate check out the Canadian Blood Services website.

    Please let me know if you are interested in joining me so that I can get some rough numbers and book a block of appointments for us all. Include what time you think you will make it.

    the clinic runs from 1:30 PM to 7:30 PM

    remember.... It's in you to Give.

    Other stuff... Building a doubler, D300 Flip kit

    Lol joe. Aren't you healed up yet?

    Bump for a good cause.

    Rod, the 56 day thing is set by Canadian Blood Services. They may just run the clinic less often.

    For sure. We can make it a wing night. The pint and a pound for 7.99$ is on that night.

    It's an easy process.

    Let's make this happen.

    another screening condition to keep in mind: many common travel destinations are considered malaria risk zones by CBS - check here if you've travelled in the past year, you may not be eligible to donate

    can't make it to your night, but great cause and thought. i've been donating for almost 18 years (free peach juice and peak freans - awww yeahs!!).

    good job everyone!
    one of these days...
