World Blood Donor Day
Today is world blood donor day – the day we celebrate and thank all those who come in and donate! The theme for 2017 is: Don’t wait until disaster strikes – come and donate NOW!
In crisis or emergency situation, the natural human response is “What can I do? How can I help?”. Therefore, the slogan for the 2017 campaign is: What can you do?, with the secondary message: Give blood. Give now. Give often.
The campaign underlines the role every single person can play in helping others in emergency situations, by giving the valuable gift of blood. It also focuses on the fact that it is important to give bloo
d regularly, so that the blood stock is sufficient before an emergency arises.
