.ABOUT WBDD 2014

Every blood donation is a gift of life.  Did you know that every donation (one pint) can save three lives?  Every two seconds, someone needs blood - and there is no substitute - the only source is voluntary donors, like you.  If all blood donors gave three times per year, blood shortages would be rare (the current average for regular blood donors is about two per year).

The need is constant and crucial every day.  A blood shortage occurs any time donations fall enough to strain the buffer that blood centers maintain in order to keep hospitals supplied.  This can occur either due to a disaster or simply due to a fall in donorship or a rise in demand.  The blood center is responsible for making sure hospitals have adequate blood supplies at all times, especially in tragedies.  We all have a responsibility to make sure we have enough blood at all times.  A single car accident victim - who could be your friend, family member, child, or yourself - could need 50 units or more in order to survive.  Your blood donation gives someone the gift of another sunrise, another hug, another chance.

 

Our First WBDD Event - 2012

In 2012, PintClub joined with Florida's Blood Centers and the University of Central Florida to celebrate our local blood donors and help raise awareness about blood donation. World Blood Donor Day (WBDD) is an international initiative hosted annually through the World Health Organization. This is the first major WBDD initiative in Central Florida.

On June 14, 2012, one hundred and six supporters and 23 volunteers helped form a human blood drop for an aerial photo.
