Around the world, As, Bs and Os are disappearing. During our Missing Type campaign we are asking everyone to 'drop' the letters of the main blood groups to show support for blood donation and register to give blood. This year blood donor organisations from 21 countries - covering 1 billion people - are coming together, with support from organisations such as Microsoft, Boots and Manchester City.

In England alone we need almost 200,000 new donors, especially from blood groups like O negative and A negative, younger and black and South Asian donors. So register to give blood today.

Want to donate from outside of England?

Visit your local service website in Wales, Scotland, Northern Ireland or Republic of Ireland or search 'Give Blood' to find the relevant Blood Service in your country.

Blood donors - saving lives across the world

See the difference that blood donation can make. You can give blood in less than an hour and save and improve up to three lives. Without this help many people would not be here to tell their story.

Join us on social media #MissingType

#MissingType across Twitter

Show your support for giving blood by writing your name with the As, Os, and Bs missing on a piece of paper, take a selfie and post to Facebook, Twitter or Instagram making sure you post to our social channels too! Don't forget to include #MissingType so you can share your support with everyone!
