The Power of Blood Donation: Blood Heroes Contest 2023

Blanca Garcia

What Is The Blood Heroes Contest?

Did you know that nearly 4.5 million Americans need life-saving blood transfusions yearly? According to, although 37% of Americans are eligible to donate blood every year, only about 10% do it.

But the issue is not limited to the US alone. The World Health Organization estimates that less than 1% of the global population donates blood. Almost half of these donations also come from wealthier countries accounting for less than 16% of the worldwide population.

Well, Health Canal wants to change this through the Blood Heroes Contest, a three-week-long contest that aims to pay up to $2000 for winners, all designed to encourage more people to become courageous, blood heroes in a noble cause to save millions of lives each year. 

Applicants from all countries are welcome to share their blood donation stories. Two winners will be selected and awarded a whopping $1000 for donating blood.

The Blood Heroes Contest: Apply In 2 Simple Steps

The Blood Heroes Contest is open to anyone worldwide who has ever donated blood.

For a chance to become a blood hero and win the top prize of $1000 in any of the two reward categories, kindly follow the two simple steps below.

  1. First, start by submitting your blood donation story through The Blood Heroes Contest Application Form. You are also free to submit any relevant documentation as supporting evidence of your blood donation and any photos and videos related to your story using the same form.
  2. Secondly, once the story is submitted through our application form, share it publicly on social media with the hashtag ‪#Healthcanalbloodheroes and the link to the Blood Heroes Contest’s landing page in the caption of your social media post.

How Will The Winners Be Selected?

The Blood Heroes Contest will have two categories from which a single winner will be selected. 

The first category is “The Best Story,” where the entry with the most inspiring blood donation story will win the first $1000 prize. In this category, Health Canal evaluates stories submitted based on uniqueness, creativity, and inspirational value. 

The second category is “The All-Time Blood Donor.” Health Canal seeks to reward $1000 for an individual who has consistently and regularly donated blood throughout their life. The selection team will look at the frequency of donations based on verified blood donation certificates.

Once applications have closed, the judges will begin evaluating each entry based on the criteria discussed above and any other factor they may decide necessary for determining the winners.

Because the selection is a rigorous process, it will take a week or so to complete. Finally, winners of each prize category will be announced through the Health Canal website.
