It's in you to give — but not enough people are doing it, according to the folks at Canadian Blood Services.

Stats show more fatalities occur on roads during the summer than any other time — and it takes up to 50 donors to save one life.

CBS would need 30,000 appointments each week through the summer to meet the anticipated demand.
