has O-negative blood
O-negative blood is the universal donor, and can be given to anyone in need
There's a good chance someone in your family also has O-negative blood
As one of the few Canadians with O-negative blood, you’re known as a universal donor. That’s because your donation can be given to any patient, regardless of blood type. So in emergency situations when there's no time to confirm a patient's blood type, your O-negative blood can mean the difference between life and death. With a decrease in supply and increase in demand, every O-negative blood donation is invaluable. We urge you to book an appointment today and become a vital member of our life saving team.
In an emergency, an O-negative blood donor can make a lifesaving difference.
Only 12% of our donors are O-negative. So while we could say we need your donations now more than ever, the truth is, O-negative blood is always in high demand and short supply.
"Because of you, I survived this.”

There are many ways to donate. You can give one-time or recurring financial donations, organize group donations in collaboration with other organizations or communities, sponsor a donation event or even volunteer your time.
