Today is World Blood Donor Day, and the theme this year is Blood Connects Us All.
On this day, we reflect on the blood supply challenges faced around the globe. Sadly, this week in Orlando we are working to uplift a community impacted by a terror attack targeting our LGBT friends and neighbors. In response, blood donors have flooded the donation centers and bloodmobiles in an outpouring of kindness and love. The response of central Floridians to this tragedy has been inspirational. Our community’s response of blood donorship illustrates how Blood Connects Us All.
We thank our community for their involvement and response. We thank every blood donor, everyone who brings refreshments and other supplies to support the blood drives, and the volunteers who have been working around the clock to help our community come together.
We thank people around the world for your support and compassion on this World Blood Donor Day.
