Donate blood and win a doctor

In honour of donating blood 100 times, Dr. Shane Longman is holding a contest to win Shane-4-A-Day.

Doctor Shane Longman can do a lot of things.

But one thing the general practitioner does exceptionally well is donate blood.

On Nov. 5, Longman will make his 100th donation when the Canadian Blood Services clinic comes to the Best Western Barclay Hotel. In honour of this personal milestone and to bring awareness to the need for donating blood, Longman is holding a contest to win Shane-4-A-Day.

All you have to do is go to the clinic between Nov. 5–7 and donate blood, and you can enter the contest. Or, make a donation for the École Alberni Elementary School playground fund, a project also close to Longman’s heart as two of his four children attend the school.

“I want it to be in the spirit of fun,” says Longman. “There’s certainly a lot of things I can do: I can teach ballroom dancing, I can show you how to make beeswax candles. I have a professional espresso machine I can bring into your office to make everyone espresso.”

He’s also willing to dress up in costume to promote someone’s business or event.

He can rake leaves and babysit, but “I hope people take this in the spirit of what it is: to be fun.”

The blood clinics are Nov. 5–6 from 2–7 p.m. and Nov. 7 from 12:30–5:30 p.m. Call 1-888-236-6283 to book.
