Donor recognition program
Donor generosity is vital. To highlight the commitment and importance of blood donors, we have established a recognition program for the men and women who help us on a daily basis to improve the quality of life of patients or save their lives.
Whether you have donated once or several times, we are committed to celebrating your sense of sharing. So under the “Give blood. Give life.” theme, our donor recognition program is designed to underline your contributions and the attainment of various donor-recognition levels. Even though the eligibility frequency for making different types of donations varies, they are all included in the total donation count (whole blood, platelets, red blood cells and plasma).
When you donate for the first time, you receive a pin and a donor card. A pin of recognition will then be given to you at every five blood donations until you reach your 195th donation (starting at 200 donations, a pin is given at every 25 additional donations).
The donor card assigned to you varies according to the following system:
- White card—from 1 to 99 donations
- Gold card—from 100 to 149 donations
- Platinum card—150 donations or more (a new card after every 50 donations)
|Welcome to new donors||1|
|Thank you to our regular donors||3-5-10-15|
|A career as a donor is taking shape||20-25-30-35-40-45|
100 to 199 donations
The Great Blood Donation Ambassadors (100 or more donations) are also invited to official recognition evenings. They are also awarded an honorary certificate at each 25 donations until they reach 200 donations.
200 or more donations
Those who reach 200 donations receive a glass trophy. A new trophy is given at each additional 100 donations.
The outstanding contribution of donors who reach the 1,000 milestone is acknowledged with a special medal at the blood drive location, in the presence of an official Héma-Québec representative.
We encourage you to donate and to continue donating blood or blood components. Every time you make this simple, generous and invaluable gesture, you help save the lives of several people. On behalf of the recipients, thank you!
