    Indian Blood Donors is an online database of voluntary donors who are willing to help patients during the times of emergency blood requirement. It uses an SMS based technology along with the website and social media platforms to bring donors and recipients together. I had created a similar database for my local community, but joined IBD when I came to know that their initiative was pan India. I promoted this initiative among colleges, schools, corporate offices, hospitals and blood banks, so as to encourage people to enroll with IBD. My primary focus was to create awareness among people of the increasing gap between demand and availability of blood as well as of the benefits of blood donation. We also organized a few blood donation camps in our district before and after affiliating with IBD.
