Partners For Life

Canadian Blood Services

Kin Canada is a National Partner for Life with Canadian Blood Services (CBS), the not-for-profit that ensures Canadian patients have reliable access to the safe, high-quality blood and blood products, stem cells, and organs and tissues they need.

According to CBS, only 4% of Canadians donate blood, yet up to half of us will either need it or know someone who will need it their lifetime.

From heart surgery that can require up to 5 donors to car accident victims who may need 50, donating blood is truly a gift of life. Consider joining us in our efforts to meet this vital need.

Clubs can help address and advocate the need for blood donors through awareness initiativesdonating blood, setting up group appointments to donate together and also through adopting clinics.
