Backstage Passes for Blood Donation: Saving Lives Never Sounded So Good

by Russel

February 25, 2013


That was the hope when I started the organization Music Saves Lives in 2005. Today, Music Saves Lives reaches thousands of young people by partnering with music events to send those who have donated blood back stage; to meet bands at concerts like the Vans Warped Tour; at festivals like Epicenter; or at Music Fest North West. By partnering with such high profile music shows, our efforts have considerably changed the summer blood supply in many cities all over the U.S. and added over 7 percent to the entire nation’s blood supply during June, July and August.    

Not everyone is ready to donate blood, but what we hope is that you focus on the lives you may be helping to save by donating blood. By giving a single pint of blood, you may help save as many as three lives. You will feel just a slight pinch, and it's over in seconds. The difference you can make may last a lifetime.

We hope at Music Saves Lives that you get involved, run a blood drive, or tell someone you know that can donate to get out and save a life. If you love music, and you want to get involved, download the new Music Saves Lives App for your smart phone and earn your VIP badge by being part of the efforts of Music Saves Lives. Search Music Saves Lives on iTunes or your App Store. Saving Lives Never Sounded So Good.
