World Blood Donor Day History
World Blood Donor Day raises awareness for the need for blood and blood products (plasma, red cells, and platelets) around the world. Donated blood and blood products make surgeries possible, lessen the gravity of humanitarian and natural disasters, and can help just about anyone in need. Blood and its products are collected from donors who are willing to roll up their sleeves to donate approximately one-fifth of their blood. So, World Blood Donor Day is just as much a celebration of blood as it is of blood donors who give their life-saving gift to help unknown people in need.
The event began in 2004 and has been growing in popularity ever since. World Blood Donor Day is celebrated annually on June 14th, a date chose as it is the birthday of Nobel Prize winning scientist Karl Landsteiner who discovered the ABO blood group system.
