Partners for Life

Many organizations, institutions and communities across Canada have joined the movement to give life through our #PartnersForLife program. Build your team and experience the opportunity to book group donations, host donation events, raise awareness, or start a pledge.

Donate as a team at one of our donor centre or mobile donation event in your community. In most regions, arrangements can be made for our Lifebus to transport your group to and from our donor centre the day of your group donation event. 

Host a blood donation event

Engage your network in a meaningful, hands-on collaborative project to successfully fill all the appointment slots at your donation event. Personalize the donation experience by decorating the donor centre, enlist volunteer greeters and provide additional refreshments.

Set an annual blood donation pledge

Set an annual blood donation pledge

 

Has your organization ever teamed up and committed to an annual donation pledge to donate blood, plasma, platelets or stem cells year-round? If your organization comprises of at least 1000 employees or members, they are a great candidate to support annual pledges. 

step one

Donate blood


Every blood donation makes a difference. Sometimes, it takes multiple donors to save a life. For a patient undergoing cardiovascular surgery, it can take up to five donors to provide a favourable outcome. 

step 2

Engage as a team


Saving lives together is the ultimate team building opportunity. It offers employees a sense of pride and meaning that their company is committed to making a difference.

step three

Build reputation


Partnering with us to donate blood and save lives is a fantastic way to practice corporate values, boast your corporate profile and meet social responsibility goals.

step four

Celebrate your success


Let your employees, customers, partners and stakeholders know about your commitment to building a stronger and healthier community.

step five

Develop employee skills


Your staff will have plenty of opportunities to come together, develop new skills and champion their blood donation efforts.  Engaging your staff on such a meaningful collaborative cause allows them to develop a stronger sense of pride in their organization.

step six

Grow your business


According to a study by Ipsos Reid, 71 per cent of Canadians strongly agree that companies who host blood donation events are kind and caring, and 78 per cent would be more likely to purchase products or services from companies that visibly support blood donation in Canada.
