Call For Blood

Published on June 26, 2014 um 11:41

Summary of your idea

From last year Ive been working as a blood donor and I know how hard it is to find a right blood donor in time of emergency. Most often I found, donor had to travel a long way to come any hospital for donating blood. Though Bangladesh is a populous country, it is pathetic truth, we hardly get blood donor by side in time of emergency. So my plan is to make it easier to find a blood donor from nearest place in time of emergency easily. According to American Red Cross, an estimated 38% of the U.S. population is eligible to donate, less than 10% actually do each year. As blood cannot be manufactured it can only come from generous donors. Another statistics says, The number smartphone users are growing by 42% a year. If we can involve this 42% in donating blood, no doubt it would bring a revolutionary change. As user of smartphone is growing highly with time being, my plan is to combine these two statistics into one master plan. The use of the app would be very easy to find donor of any blood group. Any registered user of the app will receive a Call For Blood alert when anyone else will be in need of it. The app will send alert according to users blood group and current global position

Expected impact of your idea on sustainable development

The main target of my plan is young generation. As they spend whole day in connection with internet, it would be the easiest way to contact with them in time of emergency. The app will be nothing critical than any chatting app and it will be well organized. As Im giving higher priority to the personal safety, no doubt this idea will be adorable to the male and female donor. When whole world is busy to save own time, the location finder of my app makes it more valued idea to search for a blood donor.

Plans for implementation and sustainability

Ive already mentioned the app Im talking about will be simple like any other chat app and of course itll be free for all. As the app will send message according to donors global position, so the time of a donor spent on road will be reduced. And thus patient will receive the help in the shortest time. My app will search for the blood group at first secondly the search will be between available and unavailable donors. The last and final search will be looking for the nearest donor from the location of the patient. All registered donor will receive a Call For Alert and interested donor can contact with the person or institution to donate blood. It should be kept in mind, only donor can decide if his/her current position and contact information should be visible to all. But the alert of Call For Blood will be sent to every registered member. Thus, a massive number of donors from nearest position from patient will receive the alert, indeed donor could be managed in the shortest possible time. As patient will be in nearest hospital, any donor will feel the responsibility of helping from inside. Therell be no need of travelling a long way, so time will not a big fact. And the safety first concept of the app will inspire any donor to download the app and keep install on personal smartphone.
