This November, in commemoration of Remembrance Day and World Kindness Day (November 13), Canadians are encouraged to Do the KIND Thing™, by donating blood or making a financial donation to Canada's Lifeline in honour of the women and men of the Canadian Armed Forces. Canadian Blood Services, The Department of National Defence and KIND Snacks have partnered to change lives and drive donations.
KIND Snacks is proud to partner with Canadian Blood Services. By improving the way we live, eat and relate to one another, they hope to foster communities that are healthier, more empathetic and embrace our shared humanity.

KIND representatives will also sponsor relaxation lounges on November 13th at select donor centres in Toronto from 10AM-2PM (2 Bloor Street East, Hudson Bay Centre) and Vancouver from 11AM-6PM (4750 Oak Street).

Giving blood is a simple yet powerful act of kindness.
In 2016, Colleen Fitzpatrick was named the 2016-2017 National Silver Cross Mother. Both Colleen and her husband Jim understand how important it is to be a blood donor and an advocate for blood donation. Their son, Corporal Darren Fitzpatrick, was fatally wounded while serving in Afghanistan.
His parents credit blood donation for prolonging Darren’s life, enabling him to spend his final weeks with his family before succumbing to his injuries. Colleen passionately reminds us that while blood donation often saves lives, it is equally important to recognize that blood donation prolongs lives as well.
