World Blood Donor Day

June 14th is World Blood Donor Day. I am a regular donor and have been giving blood for years. I had gotten into the habit of giving every two months, as allowed in the United States, but I had to stop after my (first ever) international trip last September. I went to Peru, which is on the list of dangerous countries, blood-donor-wise. I am resentfully awaiting September 10, 2011 when I will officially be allowed to donate again and then I'm never traveling outside the U.S. again.

Please, someone who is reading this who has never given blood before, please give.

Hi Regina,

Thanks for bringing attention to World Blood Donor Day!

I put together a graphical illustration on Blood Donor FAQs that you and your blog readers might enjoy.

Feel free to post (there's easy to copy and paste HTML at the bottom of the graphic)
