Challenge continues: Be a blood donor

Hello fellow students!

How is the journey going? Have you thrived over the last six months? Or merely survived?

Either way, you have made it this far! Well done! You’ve made it to the home stretch and well, you can’t relax quite yet, you can count down the days until Reading Week.

Some information to put on your radar:

• Did you know that the Students’ Association, in cooperation with Canadian Blood Services, has a goal of collecting 800 blood donations this year? Follow these steps to join our challenge:

Next time you donate, register as a “Partner for Life” with the Students’ Association of Red Deer College:
– Visit
– Use the Partner ID Number: REDD011471 (four letters, six numbers)

This is a one-time registration. Once registered, your past and future donations will automatically count toward the Students’ Association of Red Deer College. Invite your friends and family to donate with our team!

• From February 26 until March 2, Mental Health Week will be running between 11 and 2 daily! Each day will bring different activities and themes designed to help students de-stress, relax, and thrive!

• On February 28, join us in recognizing Pink Shirt Day!
“…bullying affects so many people physically, emotionally and mentally, we know there are many students, parents, schools and community members that want to know what they can do to help. Every contribution, whether it’s joining us in wearing pink on February 28, 2018 to show you’re taking a stand, or making an effort to practice kindness and acceptance … makes a difference, can change a life.”

• The Students’ Association Issues Committee is looking for your feedback! This committee is chaired by the Vice President Operations. There are many issues and concerns students bring forward each year to the Students’ Association. It is the responsibility of this group to identify and respond to student concerns and campus safety issues. They will identify strategies to resolve issues and forward these recommendations to SA Executive and Students’ Association Council.  Any student may sit on this committee.

Issues Committee is seeking feedback on the Campus Store and the student experience. If you have any comments, please forward them to me at any time at [email protected]

I will leave you with a joke: There is nothing I hate more than grammar, oxford commas and missed opportunities.
