How nonprofits can respond to Coronavirus (COVID-19)


World Blood Donor Day: Blood Donation Events

Once you’ve created a Facebook Page and your organization is approved to request blood, your organization can create a blood donation event. Blood donation events give organizations the ability to create events that automatically notify nearby Facebook blood donors.

How to create a blood donation event:
  1. From a desktop, click the Events tab in the left hand side bookmarks
  2. Click Create an Event
  3. Add the event title, date, time and a short description
  4. Set the location for your event
  5. Upload an event cover photo (Ideally 1920 x 1080 pixels or larger with little or no text)
  6. Click Publish
  7. After you create an event, Facebook will give you the option to turn it into a Blood Camp
  8. Confirm the location of your event; use the map to indicate exactly where your event will take place.
  9. Based on your location Facebook will notify matching blood donors in the area
