Donating blood is a safe process even during the age of Covid. Everyone is wearing masks and other safety measures are in place for donor and staff. It’s worth the extra effort to be sure the blood supply is safe and plentiful. Donate wherever you are.
Declared in 2016, the first week in September in the United States is National Blood Donation Week. September is also National Preparedness month, a month to promote family and community disaster planning now and throughout the year.
Blood donors can help in the fight of COVID-19. Convalescent plasma that comes from those who have the COVID antibodies can help save the lives of people infected with the virus.
If you can donate blood or encourage others to do the same. It’s an easy way to help make your community and the world a better place to live.
Apparently when you donate blood, it has to be your blood. Important information.
My most recent blood donation has shipped. It’s going to save 3 lives which is a good feeling. I’m happy to help so others might live a little longer.
Giving at the office (I work for a blood bank) some A-Negative whole red blood cells for those who need it. It’s good to help others. The first donation of the new decade. Whatever you can do to help those in need just do that.
Every year on June 14th countries around the world celebrate World Blood Donor Day. The event, established in 2004, serves to raise awareness of the need for safe blood and blood products, and to thank blood donors for their voluntary, life-saving gifts of blood.
If you can donate blood it’s a great way to be a true hero where you live.
It’s been awhile since my last blood donation due to my iron not being at what it needed to be. Donating on Memorial Day in the USA seems like the right thing to do. If you can donate blood in your area please do so because there is a shortage nearly everywhere.
Or should I say Happy Valentine’s Day….
