GroundTruth will be leveraging the power of its location technology and targeting to drive new donors and those who have not given recently to their nearest Red Cross donation center, increase online sign-ups to give blood, and build brand awareness for the need for new donors. Right now, reserves are below that minimum.

This is an innovative bid to attract new, young blood donors. "Give blood. Share life". "We're asking donors to step forward over the next 100 days and help make sure the blood supply for local hospitals keeps ahead of patient needs". Some blood types are rare, so promoting the need for rare donor types is also part of this event.

USA health officials say they need to collect more than 13 million blood units annually to meet patients' needs. By joining the #MissingType movement, donors can find out their blood type this summer. "But the truth is blood is needed every two seconds in the United States".

Mlambo said the public can also get involved by deleting the "blood types" from their names on social media for the week of June 11 to 18.
