Imagine that the people who you saved know who you are

World Blood Donor Day 2013

On 14 June 2013 we celebrated World Blood Donor Day. This is the day that we thank all blood and plasma donors for their gift.

Their donations save lives! With every donation they help multiple patients, and with an average of 35 donations they save a life. They improve these patients' quality of life and have a special bond with each other for life.
Their contribution to Dutch society has not remained unnoticed. PostNL issued a special postage stamp for World Blood Donor Day. This year we are communicating this appreciation through a special postcard.

Patients also want to thank all the blood and plasma donors. A number of them went on the road together with John Williams. We documented their experiences in a short video clip.

Can I give blood right now?
