September 11, 2001, was a day that forever changed America’s history. On this day, over 400 New York emergency workers gave their lives in order to help save others. To remember those heroes, we proposed a nation-wide blood drive campaign at state colleges and universities around the USA to encourage young adults to give life in the form of blood donation in memory of those who gave theirs. The ‘One Day’ Blood Drive Project campaign will remind us all how much can negative and positive change can occur in just one day - how many lives can be lost and how many lives can be saved.
The One Day Blood Drive Project was started by a group of Georgia Tech students looking to make a difference in the world. The project remains in the hands of the amazing students at Georgia Tech who manage its organization, design of PR materials for schools, and contact and assist other schools in setting up their blood drives.
