Why November is Sikh Remembrance Month
Canada Wide Campaign
Over 2,600 donors are needed to help meet this year’s annual goal
Register your donation with Partners for Life (National Sikh Nation Team PFL #SIKH001313) and ensure all your donations are counted towards Sikh Nation’s annual goal.
The Sikh Nation (Sikh Quom) around the world reaches out and embraces the vision that all humans should live a safe and happy life. Our blood donation campaign in November represents a look to the past and a view to the future, coming together as humans around the world
Sikh Nation has also become Canadian Blood Services’ largest Partners for Life (PFL) donor group in the B.C. and Yukon region, and one of its largest donor groups in the country. Our volunteers are committed to ensuring Canada’s national system for blood and other life essentials reflect our country’s cultural mosaic.
The Sikh Nation community has joined the Partners for Life program. This program allows organizations to track donations from registered members and work towards a yearly donation goal. Teamwork, dedication and commitment are essential to meeting goals.
Sikh Nation donors are committed to supporting patients and Canada’s Lifeline. Sixty per cent of their donations each year happen outside of November, as many Sikh Nation members are regular donors.
“The campaign is designed to bring people together by saving the lives of our fellow Canadians,” says Jastej Kaur a volunteer for Blood Donation by Sikh Nation. “Through this partnership, the Sikh community in Canada has come out in droves and many have gone on to become regular blood donors.”
As a people, Sikhs believe that everyone is equal. Join them by
giving blood this November. You’ll be giving the gift of life and
becoming part of a truly blessed and inspiring cause.
You can also make a further statement by turning off your
lights in your home on Nov 1st @ 6pm for a minute of silence.
All our hearts beat the same blood. Join us and help us make
sure that no one ever forgets what happened in 1984.
Is the ‘Sikh Nation’ truly a Nation? The answer is a resounding YES!
“A Nation is a community of people formed on the basis of a common language, history, and ethnicity.”
With a world population of over 25 million people (including 500,000 in Canada and 700,000 in the US) in 20 Countries the Sikh Nation is clearly a Nation by any standards.
Humour Hacks to Help Boost Mental Health
Humour Hacks to Help Boost Mental Health. After decades of trying to keep the “Black Dogs of Depression” at bay, I realized it wasn’t the dogs that were the problem. It was me.
Depression wasn’t some outside force hounding and terrorizing me. It was part of me. And when I accepted that, it gave me more control and understanding. My choices, my reactions, and my emotions were mine.
My opportunity came when a chance meeting with a young doctor gave me the foothold I needed to create an upward spiral that undoubtedly saved my life.
And the dogs? I think of them more like the “Black Cats of Depression.” I’ve learned how to co-exist with them. They come and go as they please, I don’t provoke them, and if they curl up on my lap, they tell me I need to take a break. Then they usually want to play.
That’s where the laughter comes in.
