National Blood Week
Donor ID: Dear Kay, Did you know that we supply hospitals with around 7,000 units of blood every day? Or that, in order to continue to meet that demand, we must recruit nearly 200,000 new donors every year?
As a valued blood donor yourself, there’s a good chance that you did know – but we’re willing to bet that many of your friends or colleagues don’t!
That’s why this year, as part of our National Blood Week celebrations, we’re asking donors to share these facts with anyone they know who might be interested in blood donation, to help us continue to recruit the new donors we need. Facts like:
So if you do know someone who you think might be interested in giving blood, please forward this email to them or tell them to visit us at http://elists.postroom.com/t/4452/1514134/2/18/.
- each unit of blood donated is split into its constituent parts, and can save up to three lives
- the number of regular blood donors has fallen by 23% over the past decade
- the minimum age for blood donation is 17 years (650,000 people will turn 17 in the next 12 months!)
Thanks again for your continued commitment,
Assistant Director, Blood Donation
