BloodBanker.org is an economy for blood supply.
The problem we are solving is simple. Blood donations (supply) has decreased significantly, while demand for blood is growing substantially. The result is going to be deadly blood shortages.
Blood has become the 'lubricant of modern medicine' in the sense that it's used for all type of procedures and to treat a whole host of diseases. There is no substitute for blood, as it can only come from healthy donors.
Hospitals only have a few days worth of blood supply on hand. Any kind of increase in blood demand (ie: natural disaster, shooting, big car accident) results as a "run on the blood banks". We need a new way to think about how to connect and reward donors.
BloodBanker.org has the solution. We've created a peer-to-peer network where people can get compatible blood locally from their community. That way we have a safety net that protects us from deadly blood shortages. Also, we reward people that donate blood with credits called BloodCoin that can be cashed in when they (or someone they know) needs blood.
What we will do with the money...
We've already raised over $40k and just need another $10k to refine our product to make a BIG impact in the world.
1. Mobile Technology
- We'd like to build a killer mobile interface so members can enjoy the security of being able to get blood anywhere & anytime.
2. Technology Improvement
- We want to add some groundbreaking features that will revolutionize the blood supply and simply put an end to blood shortages.
3. Worldwide Distribution
- We want to provide our technology to everyone in the world as we think everyone should have access to blood and be rewarded for donating.
4. Book Updates
- Michael S. Williams' employment! If we make our goal then we will hire the author to updates his books! Version 2.0 of his best selling books are guaranteed to take his ground-breaking work to a new level!
