It’s World Blood Donor Day on June 14, 2015, and the World Health Organization (WHO) has shared a special video on the occasion. The video has been made keeping in with their theme that each time you donate blood, you might save up to three lives, and not just one.
WHO says, “Every year, on 14 June, countries around the world celebrate World Blood Donor Day. The event serves to thank voluntary unpaid blood donors for their life-saving gifts of blood and to raise awareness of the need for regular blood donations to ensure quality, safety and availability of blood and blood products for patients in need. #ThankForSavingMylife, #WorldBloodDonorDay, #WBDD2015”.
According to WHO, the theme of the 2015 World Blood Donor Day goes is “Thank you for saving my life”. The WHO campaign “aims to highlight stories from people whose lives have been saved through blood donation, as a way of motivating regular blood donors to continue giving blood and people in good health who have never given blood to begin doing so.” Another slogan – ‘Give freely, give often. Blood donation matters’ – is being used on World Blood Donor Day.
