Give blood, save a life

Give blood, save a life #GiveBacktoMilan

The international community donated in Milan on May 3rd, 2021 

The event was held on 

Monday, May 3rd 2021

Every few seconds, someone in Italy needs blood...

● Those who have been involved in serious accidents, like a car crash
● Those who need a surgery
● Mothers giving birth
● People with blood disorders, such as sickle cell patients
● Patients being treated for cancer
● Leukemia patients

People like you, whose life depends on the kindness of others.

Milan has a large community of international citizens who love their city and want to give their contribution. #GiveBackToMilan opens to everyone the opportunity to give back by actively doing good.

Be kind, help save lives.

How you can help:

Giving blood is a selfless act of kindness, but we’ll be offering you: 

  • A free check-up of your blood
  • A day off from work (if you wish)

And, most of all… the joy and fulfilment of knowing you’ve been of help. 

Go donate blood, if you can. 

If you can’t donate, you can always help raise awareness:

  • Share a picture of yourself with a GiveBackToMilan filter on Instagram in your stories or post.
  • Tag @DoctorsinItaly or use the hashtag #GiveBacktoMilan and #GBtM in the description so we can find you and reshare.
  • Share also the link to this page with all details, so your friends can come donate.

One single donation can save up to three lives, but it can take many donors to save just one.​
