"A new social network for a strong community"
Many years ago, the blood donors formed a social network and thus a strong community in Germany. Without this strong community it is not possible to provide proper coverage with blood products of patients in Germany. Blood donations are not only urgently needed in operations or following accidents; they are much more irreplaceable in today´s cancer therapy, for example.
Social networks on the internet are entering a new dimension with new technologies and opportunities.
The Blood Donor Services of the German Red Cross would like to use these opportunities for their blood donors: to strengthen the social network of donors and to provide opportunities for people who have not yet had contact with blood donations, to exchange experiences.
