    Why blood donation matters

    ‘’Blood is the most precious gift that anyone can give to another person — the gift of life. A decision to donate your blood can save a life, or even several if your blood is separated into its components — red cells, platelets and plasma — which can be used individually for patients with specific conditions.’’ (WHO 2017)

    Light the Night Blood Cancer Awareness Fundraiser

    No thoughts and prayers here. Just solidarity and support for patients and survivors. Please join us in raising awareness and funds for blood cancer research. We can’t count on miracles to end cancer but can support researchers in finding a cure.

    Join or donate to the BC Humanist Association team (click the red buttons on our team page) and RSVP here for more information.

    Winter Relief Coat and Clothing Drive

    Being homeless in winter can become a life or death situation. As shelters open their doors in response to the weather, they are often under pressure to supply essentials to care for the needs of their guests. In a response of compassion, we kindly ask your assistance in collecting the following item to be donated to Directions Youth Services, a local secular youth shelter.

    • Outdoor winter apparel: Coats, gloves, scarfs, toques, long johns, sweaters
    • New socks, underwear, bralettes, camisoles/undershirt
    • New person hygiene products like toothbrushes, tooth paste, deodorants, mini soaps, hand sanitizer, shampoos/conditions
    • Winter shoes/boots

    Everyone wants to feel dignified. Personal care while living on the street is real challenge. A donation of new and gently used goods makes an awful situation a little more bearable.

    Event Details: Drop off locations to be announced shorty.
