LifeShare Blood Centers is joining with blood banks across the world to publicly honor blood donors in conjunction with the World Health Organization (WHO) World Blood Donor Day on June 14.
The theme of World Blood Donor Day 2016 is “Blood Connects Us All,” a campaign developed by the Netherlands’ blood bank, Sanquin Blood Supply, and their creative partners. Additionally, LifeShare is participating with blood centers nationwide by utilizing limited edition Nexcare Give bandages on World Blood Donor Day and the surrounding week.
The Nexcare Give bandage was also created to thank donors and to raise awareness of the need for blood. The “Feel the beat, Give Blood” limited edition collection of bandages features five designs inspired by music styles and trends across the globe.
On June 14, LifeShare Blood Centers invites all blood donors to stop by any of their locations and enjoy international snacks in their honor for World Blood Donor Day.
