If you didn’t already know, June 14th is World Blood Donor Day.
And in an effort to raise awareness around the importance of blood donation, while also thanking those who support this initiative, top model Niki Taylor has got together with Nexcare Bandages, America’s Blood Centers, and The American Red Cross for the 2011 “give” programme.
But our favourite part of this promotion has to be model’s fashion-inspired, limited-edition “Saving a Life is Stylish” plaster collection.
Having been critically injured in a car accident back in 2001, which left her unconscious for six weeks, it’s no wonder Taylor appreciates the importance of giving blood and is promoting the cause.
“I want to thank people who give blood, every single day,” said Taylor.
“I hope when people see this give bandage, it’s a badge of honour. I hope it gets people my age and younger donating more blood. I love the collection because it’s the latest in fashion trends and saving a life is always in style. I’ll be wearing the zebra print!”
If you pledge to give blood through the Nexcare Facebook page, you can receive a free sample of the “Saving a Life is Stylish” plaster during the week of World Blood Donor Day. So far, 10674 fans have pledged to save 32022 lives!
