Donate "Red" in Honour of Canada's Troops

Operation Roll Up Your Sleeves

Canadians are being asked to donate blood in November as a way of honouring the contribution of Canadian Forces personnel in Canada and around the world.

According to the Winnipeg Sun, it's:
"an excellent way to let our Canadian troops know we're thinking of them and appreciate the sacrifices they're making not only on behalf of us here at home, but also in the cause of freedom."
Donors will be encouraged to complete "In Honour" cards at clinics that will be sent to the National Chief of the Defence Staff on their behalf.

More information on "Operation Roll Up Your Sleeves" can be found here at the Canadian Blood Services web site.

It's a great way to help your fellow Canadians, who need your blood, and to show Canada's troops that we support them and the work they do.

donating blood is such a good thing in general, and then for such a good cause! Something like that makes me get over my fear of needles in a hurry.
