Myself, I'm thankful to work in a really amazing work environment where we encourage blood donations. We just celebrated the one-year anniversary of our partnership with Canadian Blood Services, but every time an event comes up, I'm left out. I know that I can't donate, and although I'm happy for my colleagues to go out and donate, it's very frustrating for me to not be a part of that and not be a part of the great work that Canadian Blood Services does and the many lives that it saves through that work. I want to contribute, but my government tells me that I can't. It's very disappointing.
