Helping more people get the blood they need.
Facebook’s blood donation features let people sign up to get notified when blood banks need help. Your organisation can sign up to create requests and events that reach more nearby blood donors.
Over 35 million* people have already signed up to be blood donors on Facebook.

How this feature helps blood banksIn many countries, there aren’t enough blood donors to help those in need. People and blood banks often turn to Facebook when they need blood donors. Our research suggests that if people had better information and tools, more people would donate blood more regularly. We built Blood Donations on Facebook because we hope to increase the number of blood donors by making it easier to connect with blood donors.
Helping increase blood donations
Since 2017, Facebook has partnered with blood donation centres around the world to help increase the number of donors. By encouraging blood donation as a way of life, each of us can assure that there is a readily available supply of blood.
