I’m excited to report that we are getting around 3 new duck finds added to our world map every day! Only around 25% of the ducks get reported to the website, so  the actual number of people receiving ducks and their lifesaving message is much higher than this. Thank you to everyone who is taking part in spreading this lifesaving message.

Finally, I’d like to share the story of little Maisy Vignes. Maisy was the first baby in medical history to survive being born with a zero blood count. On the night Maisy was born she was rushed to intensive care with a slim chance of survival.

  1. I am so moved by Claire’s story and the love that is demonstrated throughout the website and Little yellow duck campaign. My son has donated blood regularly since the time he reached the minimum age. I am unable to donate, but I plan to help out by making ducks and setting them free. Continued blessings to you as you spread the word.
