Thanks for your front page article “Giving the gift of life,” June 15 As a staff member of Canadian Blood Services, it was really appreciated. Our donors who came into our clinic (Saturday) were happy to pick up the newspaper (we all read the Metro here!) as they were waiting to donate, and see that story on the cover.


A lot of people don’t realize how important the need for blood is; I know I never did before I worked here.


Thanks for the article and thanks to all the wonderful blood and platelet donors in Ottawa!
