We Surpassed Our Goal!
Posted January 20th, 2012 by webadmin
We are pleased to announce that in 2011, we surpassed our goal of donating 100 units of blood to Canadian Blood Services. Well, we did more than surpass it, we catapulted over the goal and landed at an impressive 147 units, donated by 74 registered members of our Canadian Hemochromatosis Society Partners for Life group. In comparison, we donated 72 units of blood in 2010.
In a letter from Canadian Blood Services Partnership Specialist, Ariella Eini, she writes, “On behalf of Canadian Blood Services, thank you so much for your support! We truly appreciate the partnership we have with the Canadian Hemochromatosis Society. When you consider that one unit (that’s a single donation) can go to three separate hospital patients, you and your organization helped 441 hospital patients in 2011! That’s an amazing and impressive achievement – one you should be incredibly proud of.”
We are very proud of all our friends of the hemochromatosis community who helped CHS reach its goal. Thank you all!
We have set our new goal for 2012 at 150 units. This is surely attainable!
