World Blood Donor Day 2017

Today is World Blood Donor Day. On this day each year, we take the opportunity to spread the importance of donating blood, encourage people to make a donation and thank those who have donated in the past.
Donated blood is a vital resource for both planned and urgent treatments, and for emergencies. This year, we focus especially on giving blood during emergencies. In times of urgency, many wonder what they can do to help people in need. The 2017 slogan provides an answer: “What can you do? Give blood. Give now. Give often.”
