Black History Month
This October is Black History Month. During the month, we are urging more black people to join the rising numbers saving lives in their community by registering as blood and organ donors. More people from black backgrounds than ever are now giving blood and donating their organs after they have died. But there is still an urgent shortage of donors to help black patients who need lifesaving or life enhancing blood transfusions and organ transplants.
