World Marrow Donor Day (WMDD) is celebrated globally on the third Saturday of September. A unique day to thank all 39 million volunteer donors who have signed up to potentially donate marrow or blood stem cells for patients in need of a transplant as well as the 800 thousand cord blood donors.
Public CBBC staff actively participate in this world day on September 18th, with the aim to raise awareness at an even a greater number of volunteer marrow and cord blood donors with their own special message through CBBC’s social media and website.
