Donate Blood, Save a Life (Secular; South African; independent) 03 / 06 (June) / 2009 :
"Blood Donor Month.


"¨Achieving 100 percent non-remunerated donation of blood and blood components¨




Millions of people around the world owe their lives to individuals they will never meet – people who donate their blood to help others. But millions more still can’t get safe blood when they need it. World Blood Donor Day, celebrated on June 14 every year, provides a unique opportunity to thank those very special people that help and to raise awareness about the need for more support.

Established by the World Health Assembly, this day marks the birthday of Karl Landsteiner, the Nobel laureate who discovered the ABO blood group system. There is broad international support to raise awareness of the need for safe blood around the world and encourage eligible individuals to donate blood regularly so that blood is readily available for all who need it when required."
(World Health Organization)
