Before Your Donation

* Blood Donation Tip - Eat Healthy Maintain a healthy iron level in your diet by eating iron rich foods, such as spinach, red meat, fish, poultry, beans, iron-fortified cereals and raisins.
* Get a good night's sleep.
* Drink an extra water and fluids before the donation.
* Eat a healthy meal before your donation.
* If you are a platelet donor, remember that your system must be free of aspirin for two days prior to donation.
* Remember to bring your donor card, driver's license or two other forms of ID.

During Your Donation

* Wear clothing with sleeves that can be raised above the elbow.
* Let the nurse know if you have a preferred arm and show the staff any good veins that have been used successfully in the past to draw blood.
* Relax, listen to music, talk to other donors or read during the donation process.
* Take the time to enjoy a snack and a drink in the refreshments area immediately after donating.

After Your Donation

World Blood Donor Day 14 June 2010

WHO chose 14 June as the day to recognize the millions of people who save lives and improve the health of others by donating blood. The Day highlights the need to regularly give blood to prevent shortages in hospitals and clinics, particularly in developing countries where quantities are very limited. Out of the 80 countries with low blood donation rates (fewer than 10 donations per thousand people), 79 are developing nations.

The annual event focuses on motivating more people to become blood donors. It demonstrates how health systems and policy-makers work to make blood transfusions safe and accessible to people worldwide. The focus of World Blood Donor Day 2010 will be on young donors, with the slogan: “New blood for the world”. Young people can make an important contribution by donating blood and by recruiting other young people to become donors.

The 2010 global event will take place in Barcelona, Spain. It will be hosted by the Spanish and Catalonian Health Care Authorities, the Spanish and Catalonian donor associations and the Spanish Red Cross.
