June 14, 2015 was World Blood Donor Day.  the theme of this year's campaign was "Thank you for Saving my life".  It focused on thanking blood donors who save lives every day through their blood donations and strongly encourages more people all over the world to donate blood voluntarily and regularly with the slogan "Give freely, give often.  Blood Donation Matters". The campaign aimed to highlight stories from people whose lives have been saved through blood donation, as a way of motivating regular blood donors to continue giving blood.   http://www.who.int/campaigns/world-blood-donor-day/2015/en/
