Promotional Ideas for National Blood Donor Month
January is National Blood Donor Month. It is the perfect time to honor blood donors or sponsor blood drives. It’s also a great time to encourage others to give blood in the spirit of the new year. It is important to help others realize just how important donating blood is.
Sponsored by the American Red Cross, National Blood Donor Month is a time when blood organizations like the American Red Cross pay tribute to the nearly 11 million people who give blood each year. It’s also a time to encourage others to make a New Year Year’s Resolution to give blood. It’s the gift of life!
By giving blood you help to ensure hospitals and other medical facilities have blood for patients.
January is a challenging time for blood donation given that cold and snowy weather as well as busy post-holiday schedules can make it difficult to secure donations. Given these points, this makes it even more important that awareness is spread about the need for blood and that blood donation saves many lives.
