Every once in awhile that thought crosses your mind to do a good deed like pay for the car behind you in the Tim Hortons drive-thru or give someone a dollar in the mall parking lot when they ask you but are you really making a difference? I gave blood for the first time about 10 years ago. My husband wanted to know his blood type and so he thought he’d kill two birds with one stone and donate blood. He found out that he has a rare blood type and since then he has given blood regularly. The first time I gave blood I fainted after and it took me a long time to go back until one day I came to realized that feeling a little dizzy is nothing compared to what some people are going through. Now we make it a date, go give blood and then go out for supper. It takes 7 minutes in the chair every 52 days. No matter how busy you are in life I can’t think of one person that can’t spare 7 minutes. This isn’t a guilt trip, I don’t work for Canadian Blood Services nor do I have a illness that requires a blood transfusion but I know how important it can be. Coldwell Banker OnTrack Realty is challenging all real estate associates to sign up to donate. Lets see which office can out do the next by helping people, because that’s what we love to do!
