The Vampire Cup campaign is an international blood donation drive. Donating blood is a very important action that can make a large impact in a community. Each unit of blood can help save up to three lives. Members may participate in the Live and Regular Vampire Cup.
The Live Vampire Cup focuses on the units of blood donated during three specific days (including World Blood Donor Day on June 14).
The Regular Vampire Cup occurs between July 1 of the current year to June 30 of the following year. This longer window allows members to organise one or more donation drives during which a running tally for the units of blood can be tracked.
Each year, in preparation for the Vampire Cup, the IPSF Pan American Regional Office creates its own campaign materials to raise awareness about this important topic.
