The Two Organizations Announce Plans for Celebrating World Blood Donor Day on June 14

BETHESDA, Md., June 10 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- To increase national and global appreciation of volunteer blood donors, AABB and the Association of Donor Recruitment Professionals (ADRP) are partnering together to encourage their respective members to celebrate World Blood Donor Day (WBDD) on June 14. This specific day marks the birthday of Karl Landsteiner, the Nobel Prize winner who discovered the ABO blood group system.

"World Blood Donor Day raises awareness of the need for safe blood around the world," said AABB Chief Executive Officer Karen Shoos Lipton. "We hope to encourage eligible individuals to donate blood regularly so that blood is readily available in our communities when it is needed."

To help promote this event, AABB and ADRP have developed a WBDD resource kit that includes downloadable materials available on their respective Web sites, including a fact sheet, poster and proclamation template. In addition, the two organizations are proud to announce the establishment of the AABB/ADRP World Blood Donor Day Award, which will recognize one organization for its outstanding efforts to promote this celebratory event. The facility selected for this award will receive one complimentary registration to the 2008 AABB Annual Meeting & TXPO in Montreal and one complimentary registration to the 2009 ADRP Conference in St. Pete Beach, Fla. The winning organization also will receive a $1,500 stipend to apply toward travel to these meetings for an employee or employees who played an instrumental role in implementing that organization's World Blood Donor Day activities. More details about the AABB/ADRP World Blood Donor Day Award submission process is posted on the AABB Web site at http://www.aabb.org and on the ARDP Web site at http://www.adrp.org. Submissio
