Important - Blood Drive Changes
Dear Rain or Shine Community,
You have blown us away with your response to our incentive program for blood donations! Our friend’s daughter was recently diagnosed with leukemia and in discussions with them this idea was born. As a group we wanted to promote blood donation and more importantly get new donors out. We figured if we reached 100 people in January that would be fantastic. Little did we know 50 of you would donate Day 1! So we have to change the program in two ways. As of Saturday January 7th you will need to come to one of our shops to pickup a card before you go to the Oak Street Clinic. When you go to the clinic, the person at the front desk will stamp your card and you can then redeem it on January 31st at one of our shops. We will also be limiting the program to 650 cards.
We hope you understand these changes. We are trying to do good for the community and this is a large donation. Unfortunately there are also significant practical limitations on how many pints we can give away. We apologize if you don’t get a pint personally but hope you can still get behind this great cause!

Have you set any intentions for 2017? Save a life? Eat more ice cream? Do both! Give blood, get ice cream.
In support of Canadian Blood Services, we would like to encourage people to donate blood. For the month of January if you mention #Pint4aPint while donating blood at the Oak Street Blood Services Clinic you will receive a card you can redeem for a pint of free ice cream, redeemable on January 31 at either of our locations, Cambie Village and Kits. First come first served, limited quantities available.
Go to blood.ca to see if you are eligible to donate and book an appointment today.
