 5th Annual LAWYERS vs. ACCOUNTANTS Kelowna Blood Drive Competition

MARK YOUR CALENDAR:
2018 Oct 16-Nov 15th – It’s up to you! Your Office, Family & Friends can join in!

GOAL: 100 people donating towards the Blood Drive!

Why: In BC, we need 10,000 blood donations each month to serve hospital patients. 1 in 2 people can donate however 1 in 60 do. The #1 reason people don’t donate is because they have never been asked – so consider this our ask! Donors Needed.
How: book online at blood.ca or download our free app to book your appointment today!
Groups of 3 or more can book by emailing pfl.bc@blood.ca

What do you need to know?
You must be 17+ to donate. Upper age limit is 71 for a first -time donor but if you have donated even once before there is no upper age limit to donate as long as you meet eligibility requirements!
BE SURE TO FILL IN A BALLOT IN REFRESHMENTS SO YOUR TEAM GETS CREDIT!

Check your eligibility before you sign up:

  • Please take the eligibility quiz before you donate
  • New Eligibility Updates
  • Travel in the last year outside of Canada or the USA

Preparing for your donation:
Please make sure you hydrate (at least 2L of water day before and 1 L of water day of), eat before you donate, be generally feeling well and bring photo ID!
