Help save millions of lives through Blood4Good.
Every 3 seconds someone needs blood. 1 out of every 10 people who enter hospitals as
patients need blood.
4.5 million Americans would die each year without life saving blood transfusions. Even though transfusions
are saving lives, many die because the needed blood type is not present at that moment and there is a delay
in its arrival. Our application solves this problem and saves more lives. Blood4Good implements
crowdsourcing, where users are either classified as donors or recipients. They enter their names, addresses
and phone numbers into the app. When a recipient is in need of blood, they enter the app and receive
nearby donors. They can then contact the donors and set up a blood transfusion, which allows the blood to be
brought in a timely manner and saves more people.
