Facebook making it easier to donate blood
Facebook announces “Blood Donations”, a dedicated space on Facebook on World Blood Donor Day, will make it easy for people to find related information to blood donation drives, requests, and nearby blood banks
KARACHI: Today, in support of World Blood Donor Day on June 14, we are launching Blood Donations on Facebook, a new center where people in Pakistan, Bangladesh, Brazil, and India can find opportunities to donate nearby. We are also running a campaign in these countries to raise awareness of blood shortage and the importance and impact of donating.
People who visit Blood Donations on Facebook can also sign up to be a blood donor to get notified directly when there is a need for blood nearby. To date, more than10 million people have signed up and thousands of donations have been facilitated through Facebook.
