Following the success of the World Health Day 2000 with the theme 'Blood Saves Lives', 14th June is observed as the World Blood Donors Day.
The date coincides with the birth date of Karl Landsteiner, who discovered the ABO blood group system.
The Blood You Donate Gives Someone Another Chance At Life. One Day That Someone May Be A Close Relative, A Friend, A Loved One Or Even You.
When anyone signs a blood donor form, he is signing a lease of life for someone else.
If you’re a blood donor, you’re a hero to someone, somewhere, who received your gracious gift of life.
Many people pray for mountains to be moved when all they need is to climb. Donate Blood for your near and dear one.
Your friends, neighbours and colleagues can become Blood Donors: recruit them and send us their names and addresses on a post-card.
