Join the #BloodDonorEmoji campaign


Community Blood Center of the Carolinas invites you to join the #BloodDonorEmoji campaign!

Globally, 112.5 million blood donations are collected each year, according to World Health Organizations. We think it’s time those millions of donors get the recognition they deserve, starting with their own special emoji. To petition the Unicode Consortium to create this emoji, we need signatures – 30,000 signatures to be exact. That’s where you come in.

We’re asking people like you all over the world to join the #BloodDonorEmoji campaign and sign the petition. You can help spread the word and create a positive change that will not only gather enough signatures to bring the petition in front of the Unicode Consortium, but also continue to bring blood donation to the forefront of people’s minds.

With your support, we can shine a spotlight on the incredible volunteers who so generously give of themselves in such a remarkable way. We can raise awareness about the tremendous and constant demand for blood donors as we work to better support the needs of hospitals and patients in our own communities around the world.

  • Visit and sign the petition.
  • Use #BloodDonorEmoji on social media, and don’t forget to tag @BloodDonorEmoji on Facebook and Instagram!
  • Tell your friends, family members and co-workers how they can support the campaign too!

Let’s get started!
