National Blood Donor Month Resources

Thank you for joining ADRP in recognition of National Blood Donor Month. We’re delighted to have you join in our campaign to spread awareness for the need for blood. Please utilize the following resources throughout the month of January to show your support. We will be releasing resources starting Fall 2023. The logo is included above and can be saved to be used for market materials. 

How You Can Help

To amplify our messages and to reach as many people as we can, we are looking to you to help us. We are asking donor centers to develop video messages and share them on social media during January. Suggested topics include:

  • “Why you should also be a blood donor” – Donor perspective
  • “Why I depend on donors” – Patient perspective
  • “Why we love our donors” – Blood center perspective
  • “Why we support blood donation” – External stakeholder perspective

Please use the NBDM logo as well when developing videos and any other materials that are in your plans. Include the hashtags, #NationalBloodDonorMonth, #NBDM and #ADRP. Ensure to include your blood center tags for maximum exposure.

customizable resources

ADRP will be launching  a full suite of digital assets to use on many social outlets.  We have continued the message from the PSA Toolkit, 'Turn Your Day Around. Donate Blood'. If you are unable to access it, please reach out to ADRP to receive the suite of graphics.
