How to Get Involved

Contact Tara Gutscher to book your team donation - [email protected]

-Every 60 seconds, a patient in Canada needs blood

-Donated blood lasts no longer than 42 days.  Due to its limited shelf life, maintaining an adequate national inventory level is critical

-100,000 new blood donors are needed every year to meet the needs of patients across Canada

-It takes teamwork to help patients.  It could take up to 50 donors to help save a crash victim, eight donors a week to help treat someone with leukemia and five donors to help someone through heart surgery

-Donate blood three times in a single year and score your very own #HockeyGivesBlood hat trick.  It's a quick and simple way to make a difference in your community

-Book now to donate at, call 1 888 2 DONATE or download the GiveBlood app
