Partners For Life
Canadian Blood Services and Crime Stoppers – together we can save more lives!
Canadian Blood Services is proud to work with hundreds of corporations and community organizations, like N.B. Crime Stoppers, nationwide each year in support of their “Partners for Life” program.
As members of this lifesaving program, companies, government agencies, community groups, schools, service clubs, faith organizations and many others demonstrate their commitment to saving lives through donating blood, platelets and plasma.
N.B. Crime Stoppers’ commitment to community was extended in 2009 to include the promotion of blood donation by joining Canadian Blood Services’ Partners for Life program.
Champion Paul Gallinger noted that the Crime Stoppers’ theme for this year is ‘Helping To Stop, Solve, and Prevent Crime – Together’. “It only makes sense to extend our support for a safer community by encouraging our members to donate blood and volunteer at blood donor clinics. A safe and secure blood supply is in everyone’s best interest.”
Are you a regular blood donor? Haven’t donated in a while? Never donated? Since joining Partners For Life, N.B. Crime Stoppers has recruited 13 new donors and 22 “lapsed donors” (individuals who have donated in the past but had not for 18 months). Those donors donated a combined 70 units of blood. As well as getting more donations this year we would also like to recruit more new donors by inviting family and friends of N.B. Crime Stoppers to join our partnership with Canadian Blood Services.
Canadian Blood Services is trying to recruit 100,000 new donors by 2015. That is a huge need, so they are asking all volunteers and partners to assist them in recruiting new donors from your family, friends and co-workers.
