World Blood Donor Day, celebrated on 14 June every year, serves to raise awareness of the need for safe blood and blood products and to thank voluntary unpaid blood donors for their life-saving gifts of blood. 
 
In 2013, with the slogan "Give the gift of life: donate blood", the 10th anniversary campaign of World Blood Donor Day focused on the value of donated blood to the patient, not only in saving life, but also in helping people live longer and more productive lives. 
 
The focus for 2014 World Blood Donor Day will be "Safe blood for saving mothers".
