Back Donating blood
Donated blood at Canadian Blood Services for the first time in more than 10 years.
A local knitting group has joined a Canada-wide initiative to knit and crochet toques for the Syrian refugees coming to Canada. The Lethbridge group is aiming for 250 toques total. the current tally is 118 toques, 29 cowls and scarves, and 6 pairs of mittens. I've knit seven toques to date and have a few more in the works.
Took some books in good shape to the Little Lethbridge Libraries in Kinsmen Park and on 7th Ave, and stopped to tidy up the shelf and exchange books that weren't moving between the two locations.
I will be making my fifth blood donation on Friday, March 4. I'm committed to going every 8 weeks! A little time (and a little pain) but it makes a big impact. Also there are cookies.
I nominated the Piggyback Poutinerie for the Taking Care of Business Downtown Champion Award. In addition to looking after our stomachs with their delicious poutine, Dylan and Wendy are always looking out for Lethbridge's furry friends. They fundraise for organizations like Prairie Pitbull Rescue, and always have fresh water available for hot puppies in the summer.
