    Thanks for that idea Allesandra. I'm going to follow up with my colleagues at the blood donation center about this and I'll get back to you.

    I love how accessible this video made blood donation. Really beautiful too. Makes me wish I could donate.

      • Alessandra Rizzotti

        No problem. For someone like me, who can't donate due to health issues, I'm wondering if there's another way to help? I've always wanted to do something and always feel like I can't get involved. Might be a nice second video for you.

          I spoke with the director of donor recruitment here at City of Hope, and she said that the best way to help is to organize a blood drive. Sounds intimidating, but there are folks here who are pros at this, and can help if you're interested. You can call 626-471-7171. or email at:

          Even if you're not in SoCal, they can probably provide you with resources in your area.
