The national donor association, Deimante, organized a number of events in Lithuania around World Blood Donor Day. An exhibition of pictures about blood donors was displayed in local hospitals in the capital, Vilnius. A new book for children about blood donation, entitled “You can help too” was published on 8 June. A press conference took place on 10 June to inform the public about the new laws regarding blood donation, and the banning of paid donation.

Some of the cities in the country ran their own events throughout June to celebrate the day and to acknowledge and thank blood donors. There were musical events in some places, including the National Blood Centre.
