How are blood donors recognized?
We track every (whole) blood, plasma, and platelet donation you make regardless if they were made to Canadian Blood Services.
Our program includes appreciation items such as special donor cards, lapel pins and certificates to thank you, our donors, after you have reached various donation milestones. These items are standard across Canada and ensure that all donors receive consistent recognition for their contribution to giving life.
What other types of donations are recognized?
We recognize all types of contributions, including:
- Whole blood, plasma, and platelets donations
- Stem cell and cord blood recruitment and donations
- Partner initiatives
- Volunteer efforts
- Financial donations

Recognition items may be given to donors at the donor centres (lapel pin) and by posted mail (donor cards).
