Give A Spit-Campaign to Help Leukemia and Cancer Patients

Give A Spit is an organization that recruits spit donors to help people diagnosed with leukemia.

Leukemia, which is a cancer of the blood, kills more children each year than any other disease. Leukemia patients have to receive a bone marrow transplant to cure the disease, but the challenge presented is patients need to find a bone marrow match.

Give A Spit was created to continue DoSomething.com‘s campaign, Give A Spit About Cancer. We intend to team up with the national bone marrow registry Be The Match (bethematch.org) to spread awareness and swab the donors’ cheeks.

Our goal is to encourage people ages 18-24 (the age of the most-in-need donors) to sign up with the bone marrow registry. Ages 18-44 are accepted, 45-60 have a 10% demand.

As a small organization, any donations small or large are welcome. Please contact giveaspit@gmail.com for donations and any questions.
