Its World Blood Donor Day today

As a campaign, World Health Organisation WHO set aside today June 14, 2015 as a day to honor blood donors who are life savers. In the WHO Blood Donor Day page, it states;

"The theme of this year’s campaign is "Thank you for saving my life". It focuses on thanking blood donors who save lives every day through their blood donations and strongly encourages more people all over the world to donate blood voluntarily and regularly with the slogan “Give freely, give often. Blood donation matters.” The campaign aims to highlight stories from people whose lives have been saved through blood donation, as a way of motivating regular blood donors to continue giving blood and people in good health who have never given blood to begin doing so."

Kindly endeavour to donate blood, you never know, you might be saving a life of someone dear to you.
