Blood Donations: Blood Donations Features

Request Specific Blood Types

Running low on a particular blood type?

Request: Facebook can notify nearby donors about your request for specific blood types or platelets.

Share: Sharing the need on Facebook helps donors know they can make an impact, even if not for a specific individual or cause

Create Blood Donation Events

Blood drives are a great way to encourage walk-in voluntary blood donations at your blood bank or another donation site.

Remember, there’s no need to specify a particular blood type for an event or host a large event.

Supporting Individuals*

In some countries, individuals in urgent need can use Facebook Blood Donations to help reach nearby donors.

In countries where the need is great, blood banks can use Blood Donations on Facebook to help contribute to a sustainable supply of blood so that blood banks can provide blood to those who need it.
