World Blood Donor Day

Two hearts are shown in bright red with white background on this 1.75 zl stamp commemorating World Blood Donor Day (Swiatowy Dziem).  The World Health Organization (WHO) proclaimed June 14, 2015, as World Blood Donor Day.  This year’s theme is Thank you for saving my life, and encourages donation worldwide under the slogan Give freely, give often.  Blood donation matters.  About 108 million units of donated blood are collected globally each year, most in the higher-income nations.  Thus, the greatest present need is found among the middle- and lower-income countries.
