June 14 World Blood Donor Day- Celebrating the Gift of Blood

Giving blood is timeless. With no substitute for human blood, those in need rely on the kindness of volunteer donors. To raise awareness and inspire action about this cause, Nexcare Bandages, in partnership with the Red Cross and supermodel Niki Taylor, announce the fourth annual Nexcare give program. This nationwide initiative shines a light on the World Health Organization's World Blood Donor Day on June 14 by thanking those who give blood and encouraging others to get involved. 

While recognizing the silent and unsung heroes who help save lives every day through their blood donations, the theme also strongly encourages more people all over the world to donate blood voluntarily and regularly.For more information about World Blood Donor Day, visit wbdd.org.How to Donate BloodSimply call 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767) or visit redcrossblood.org to make an appointment or for more information.
