Every year countries around the world celebrate World Blood Donor Day (WBDD) on June 14. It’s a day to raise awareness of the need for volunteer donors to donate whole blood and other blood products.
Through our work with first responders, defense and military, and the broader life sciences industry, we know just how important it is to have a healthy supply of safe blood products available. Peli BioThermal’s original Golden Hour™ thermal packaging technology was developed for the U.S. Army Special Forces to transport life-saving blood to far forward combat areas. Nearly 20 years later, we provide a full range of single-use and reusable temperature controlled packaging that protects mobile blood supplies for blood banks, hospitals, emergency medical personnel and first responders.
That’s why we encourage those who can to donate blood now or in the near future. Blood donations usually decrease in the spring and summer, but demand does not. It’s easy to find a donation location through the American Red Cross or a quick search for your local blood donation organization. You can make a difference!
