On 14 June, countries worldwide celebrated World Blood Donor Day with events to raise awareness of the need for safe blood and blood products and to thank voluntary unpaid blood donors for their life-saving gifts of blood.
The theme of the 2012 World Blood Donor Day campaign, “Every blood donor is a hero” focused on the idea that every one of us can become a hero by giving blood. While recognising the silent and unsung heroes who save lives every day through their blood donations, the theme also strongly encouraged more people all over the world to donate blood voluntarily and regularly.
So, Y&R hosted a Blood Drive at the agency on Thursday, 14 June from 9:30am to 2:30pm. We had 43 staff willing to donate and we managed to collect 25 pints.
Thank you to everyone who participated!
