3 March 2015: We are delighted to announce our new partnership with American Registry, Gift of Life Bone Marrow Foundation, in conjunction with their Campus Ambassador program.
The Campus Ambassador Program enlists students across the United States for a paid internship to run cheek swab drives at their colleges and are launching the applications process for the Program today.
By empowering students to reach out to their peers, the chances of finding a match for patients in need rises dramatically due to high eligibility rates of college-aged donors. The math is simple: the more younger donors who sign up, the more lives are saved.
The Campus Ambassador Program includes a system of awards that will be given out to specific Ambassadors who exceed expectations. There’s an award named after each partner, which includes ‘The Margot Martini Memorial Award’.
Gift of Life Bone Marrow Foundation helps children and adults suffering from leukemia, lymphoma, other cancers and genetic disorders find “their match”: anonymous life-saving donors for blood and marrow transplants. As one of the world’s leading registries, the vision of Gift of Life is simple: A match. Anytime. Anywhere. For anyone.
Please spread the word & support Team Margot and Gift of Life: 2 organizations. 1 mission.
