About Music Saves Lives
In an effort to raise awareness about blood donation and encourage young adults to become repeat blood donors, Music Saves Lives® is announcing its eleventh year joining forces with blood centers all over the US. Music Saves Lives partners with musicians, entertainers and festivals to encourage young adults to participate in community blood drives and then thanks donors by giving them special access to music and entertainment. This special program designed by founder and director of Music Saves Lives, Russel Hornbeek, offers a summer program to help raises and maintain the fragile summer blood supply. Thousands of units of blood are collected during the school year from college and high schools and when summer rolls around the students are looking to music as the top entertainment during their off time. Youth will then donate blood to be able to meet a favorite band or get backstage at festivals and concerts during the summer months. Music Saves Lives is a 501(c)(3) organization with the mission to educate about important life-saving causes and to use all forms of music and entertainment to motivate and deliver this message. Music Saves Lives started its mission to educate youth about the importance of blood donation and the bone marrow registry, encouraging participation and commitment to action in a life-saving way. Over 50% of the blood collected in the US goes to helping those fighting cancer. These simple commitments all connect back to strengthening the community. Visit www.musicsaveslives.org to learn more.
Fact: It is estimated that every two seconds someone in the United States needs blood.
