World Blood Donor Day 2018: Where And Why To Donate Blood

World Blood Donor Day is celebrated on June 14 every year — an occasion started by the World Health Organization in 2004, in order to raise awareness about the importance of meeting a nation’s basic requirements for blood and to prevent potential shortages. Last year’s theme was "What can you do? Give blood. Give now. Give often” — as WHO sought to educate people that the typical response in an emergency scenario is always to ask how one could help. This year’s slogan reads: “Be there for someone else. Give blood. Share life.”
