Friends of Charlotte

Friends of Charlotte
We have started a blood drive in memory of Charlotte. Our main focus will be for the month of October... but please don't let that stop you from donating all year long! Infact once you are signed up through Friends of Charlotte all your future donations will be counted towards our goal. Each year we will plan to reach a minimum of 35 units of blood. (I lost track but I know that Charlotte used at least 32 units during her battle with cancer.)
Here is a little bit that a friend wrote up for us:
A little girl who lost her life to cancer may not appear to be lucky but many times throughout her battle Charlotte was fortunate and received the lifeline that she needed: blood.
Charlotte’s big heart may have stop beating but the size and strength of it lives on in our quest. We ask you to remember her fondly and do what you can to help her friends; their little bodies need you. Educate yourself and open your eyes as wide as your heart to the fact that our Canadian Blood Services can only pass on what we choose to provide; your abundance of blood is a lifesaving gift to a child fighting cancer. 60 minutes, 7 times a year, offer your arm and give blood for our children.
Thank you all for your patience... we finally have the official link
