Celebrating the Blood Donors, #SharingLife
Donating blood is not only a noble act but also a necessary one!
Blood that matches the receiver’s blood group and which is safe to be used is difficult to find easily in hours of an emergency. To promote this noble cause we celebrate 14th June as World Blood Donor Day.
On this day we express our gratitude towards the individuals who donate their blood with the hope of saving a precious life. To further support this cause a new app, named Life is also available on the Google Play Store. This app helps you locate donors and recipients in nearby places easily in hours of need.
I must add, one should take inspiration from my friend, Avik Majumdar – he donates blood at every opportunity available. Not everyone is lucky enough to participate in this selfless activity due to numerous reasons like Anaemia, etc. hence, do it if you can!
Donating blood does not only let you save a life but also lets you share your life with someone in need. It is an act of passing on something precious to someone who needs it more. So, let us all pledge to donate towards saving precious lives, and contribute towards making the world a better place.
