Blood Donation Campaign

This year, we’re holding our annual blood donation campaign in honour of Imam Hossein in collaboration with the Who is Hussain organization, as part of the Global Blood Heroes campaign to collect 50,000 blood units happening on Saturday, August 27, 2022. There is a need for blood donation more than ever in Canada due to the significant decline in donations due to the pandemic. One hour of your time could save three lives. Check your eligibility to donate with this two-minute quiz. A representative of Canadian Blood Services will also attend our events to provide further information.

Book your appointment today at and become a global blood hero, or follow the step-by-step instructions on how to book an appointment on the CBS mobile app directed in the attached video after creating a CBS account. If you have any further questions or concerns, please visit our Blood Donation Campaign table at our Muharram programs’ venue.
