Whose School Will Save the Most Lives?
Last year more than 35,000 teenagers gave blood at Canadian Blood Services donor clinics. Today we're challenging young donors to continue that lifesaving trend — and to recruit even more donors so we can keep pace with the need for blood in Canada.
Young Blood for Life is a program just for young Canadians that calls on student leaders in high schools to inspire their peers, teachers and families to give blood. Our Youth Development Champion program helps give these leaders the tools and ideas to encourage blood donation.
There’s even a competition — the National Challenge — for schools to see who can give the most. Besides saving lives, the winning school will receive cash prizes to help with school activities. When the Challenge is over, Canadian Blood Services announces the winners to community media and publishes the results in our various magazines and newsletters for donors, volunteers and corporate sponsors.
