Uruguay Red Cross Society organized events to thank and encourage regular blood donors from the many donor clubs. At these events, donors were encouraged to go on donating blood on a voluntary basis. In addition, at the national level, information about voluntary blood donation was distributed by means of posters, flyers and the media. A press release was prepared for the occasion.
