Why Donate

The Gift of Life

Everyone who visits a CBC donor center or blood drive – often more than 1,000 individuals per week – has their own reason for doing so. Perhaps they have a friend or family member who has required a blood transfusion in the past. Maybe they are looking for a tangible and convenient way to help their community. It’s even possible that they’ve needed blood products in the past.

Quite simply, blood cannot be made or manufactured. It’s a gift that can only be given from a volunteer blood donor. This is what makes donating blood so special.

There is no clearer way to understand that the mission to connect lives and share life is one that unites us all.
