Hey there all!

This is a notice about the upcoming, fifth Annual Boardgaming Bash of Blood! How it works is real simple, at the end of January I am throwing a party... a Bash... if you will, with games, and food, and non-alcoholic drinks, you are all invited;

But I do have a request, take the time, 1 hour out of your day and go donate blood. Whole Blood, Plasma, Bone Marrow, whatever, give your time to donate something that can save a life.

Now some people are unable to donate blood for health reasons, that's okay, ask a friend or family member to do it instead, it's okay I won't mind!

You can call from anywhere in Canada:
1-888-2-Donate
To make an appointment,
and for the SAIT students out there, on January 20th (what timing!) there will be a blood drive from 9-2 on SAIT Campus, I will be there, and look forward to seeing you there as well.

Alright last year went well I had almost 25 people crammed into the condo, this year we are expanding, I am hoping to double that this year, and will be hosting it in a new space in plans to accommodate that number.
And Hopefully I will be able to offer you guys some nice suprises as the time come closer.

So book your calenders! and let's make it a Bash to remember!

So this is taking Place on January 29th 2011, from 11am to 12pm at 999 Canyon Meadows DR SW. Calgary, Alberta.

PS. You don't need to donate to attend, my party is open to any and all who wish to attend, but it's still a nice idea.

Great idea! I can't attend having a baby at home and being your neighbour to the north, but I'll certainly be donating. This was my first year as a donor for life and I'll be going in many more times in the future.

I agree as well. For the effort required from us is more than made up by the impact on others lives. I really need to get off my you know what and give blood more often as well. To be a part of the solution and not the problem kind of thing. If we all did this even once a year it would probably fix our blood supply problem.

Nice post and idea, thanks for putting it out there. Hopefully it will put a bug in peoples ear and help make a difference.

What an awesome idea!
Love it!

I certainly can't donate on that day - because it won't have been 56 days since my last donation! (due on Feb 24th)

Other than just "doing it" is there a reason? I'll happily fill in one of those "in honour of" cards.

Edited to add: Husband and I will probably show up in the afternoon for a couple games.
