Elevator pitch

Every year thousands die in Pakistan due to lack of blood banks. The affected individual has to call everybody, hoping someone will donate blood. Due to time sensitivity in such cases, people lose their loved ones which is avoidable. BloodRuns aims to connect humans to humans via web, mobile & text messages. BloodRuns sustainability will come from fundraising events, corporate sponsorship & ads.
