World Marrow Donor Day (WMDD) is a global celebration of donors that takes place on the third Saturday of September, or September 18th in 2021. Donors will be celebrated on all continents of the world through both social and conventional media.
The World Marrow Donor Association (WMDA), which believes that all patients deserve a chance to receive a stem cell transplant, founded WMDD in 2014 to thank blood stem cell donors and to raise awareness about the importance of registering as a potential donor.
How will you celebrate WMDD? Whether a short message or a big event, the WMDA encourages you to be creative and find a way to acknowledge donors on September 18th. Looking for ideas? Enjoy browsing through the 2020 events for inspiration!
