Media Advisory - Canadian Blood Services interrupts Monday morning rush hour to ask Toronto commuters to "Give Life"

TORONTO, Sept. 27, 2015 /CNW/ -


Toronto commuters will be entertained and asked to join the "Give Life" movement by some unusual groups of recruiters. People dressed in red  "Give Life" morph suits will be handing out red bandages and providing entertainment, --- and selfies – at major Toronto landmarks and intersections to help launch Canadian Blood Services' bold, new creative look and strategy.

Power to Give Life incorporates an image of Canadians proudly displaying bright red bandages as a badge of honour and highlights the power we all have to give life through donating blood, stem cells, cord blood or organs and tissues.

On September 28, find out more about the new creative look by visiting
