Millions of individuals text emojis every minute of every day, to equal over a billion. Globally, 112.5
million blood donations are collected each year, according to World HealthOrganizations. We think it’s time those millions of donors get the recognition they deserve, starting with their own special emoji.
Patients like Andrew, who at 4 1/2 months old was diagnosed with stage II neuroblastoma, require multiple blood transfusions for their treatment. Andrew is now in remission, and it's all thanks to local blood donors.
The international #BloodDonorEmoji campaign is sponsored by Community Blood Center of the Carolinas, the nonprofit blood center serving the Piedmont region of North and South Carolina. CBCC believes that together, we can shine a spotlight on the incredible volunteers who so generously give of themselves in such a remarkable way. We can raise awareness about the tremendous and constant demand for blood donors as we work to better support the needs of hospitals and patients in our own communities around the world.Get your Blood Donor Emoji Kit
