We live in toxic times. In addition to the everyday toxins that we expect to deal with such as carbon dioxide in the air and the by-products of digestion, in the last 50 years we have had to adapt to an enormous number of new toxic elements present in our food, water and environment.

Blood SOS is a simple free tool that connects blood seekers with donors within 10KM radius when in need
This seed of an idea germinated when we’ve been seeing a lot of FB, Whats app requests seeking blood donors of a specific blood group. Though there are a several blood banks and NGO, in many instances they are running short too and seek a donation to provide a unit. Also a very astonishing sigh I’ve seen was blood banks use a book/register for donors contact details, blood group etc.
Current state of blood donation in India:
- Every year our nation requires about 40 Million units of blood, out of which only a meager 4 Million units is available
- Every 2 seconds someone needs blood
- More than 38,000 blood donations are needed every day
- A single car accident victim can require as many as 100 units of blood
Why can’t this simple of a problem be solved with technology. IN the age of Uber this…Uber that…why not leverage GPS capabilities on smartphone and existing healthcare data to quickly match seekers with donors for timely response.
