The Times Online is reporting on a unique FaceBook group that is being used to contact blood donors to let them know what blood types are needed and the locations that are in need of the blood.
A New York charity called Takes All Types collects information about the blood types that are needed in which areas, and sends out alerts to registered Facebook users who may be suitable blood donors.
Ben Bergman is a New-York-based recruiter set up the blood donor group and said that it has immediately attracted the interest of hospitals and blood banks.
Facebook.com now has over 38 million registered people that can be potential contacts for blood drive efforts.
