Donating blood is one of the purest thing we can do as Canadians. No party affiliation is required and you can potentially do for a really long time.

Being an adult means you can make choices and donating blood is a very rare oportunity we have to give back.

There is very little stress, the needle is smaller than it looks, and you get cookies and juice afterward.

If you have any doubts... just show up and watch; ask questions of anyone and be assured you are doing a good thing.

It is time well spent. :)
