Today, people around the world are celebrating those who donate blood to save the lives of others. World Blood Donor Day was established to thank donors while raising awareness of the universal need for safe blood and the crucial roles that voluntary donations play in universal health coverage.
This year’s theme is “Safe blood for all” to raise awareness of the need for safe blood and encourage governments, national health authorities, and national blood services to provide the resources and infrastructures necessary to increase the collection of blood around the world.

Help spread awareness and let others know why blood donation is so important.
Research blood donation facilities around your area.
Each day lives are saved and improved by the gift of blood. Make an impact by becoming a donor, educating yourself and others, and spreading awareness.
