We are asking you and organisations to omit the blood-type letters A, B, and O from your names and brands, to raise public awareness on blood donation and to encourage more people to step forward for this worthy cause.
Every day, more than 350 bags of blood are needed to save lives. This works out to an average of a bag of blood needed every 4 minutes. Blood is needed not only in times of emergency, but also during peacetime where it sustains the lives of patients with leukaemia, thalassaemia and bleeding disorders, or patients who are undergoing major surgery. With our rapidly ageing population and expansion of healthcare facilities, the demand for blood is expected to grow annually.
Your support will be critical in ensuring that more eligible donors make blood donation a regular part of their lives.
The Missing Type campaign runs rom 4-9 July 2017.
