How might we increase the number of registered bone marrow donors to help save more lives?

Join us on a new challenge for social good!

We’re thrilled to announce the launch of our newest OpenIDEO challenge: “How might we increase the number of registered bone marrow donors to help save more lives?”

It’s tough to find anyone whose life hasn’t been touched by cancer in some way or another. Whether it’s watching a friend or loved one with cancer, or going through our own personal journey with cancer, many of us know just how hard the fight can be. For people with blood cancer, like Leukemia, one course of treatment is often a bone marrow transplant. However, finding a genetic match between a potential bone marrow donor and a patient in need can be a real challenge. This is where we need your help.

We’ve come up with a fresh challenge in partnership with Stanford University’s Haas Center for Public Service, Stanford professor Jennifer Aaker, and student group 100K Cheeks. We’re asking you, our amazingly talented community, to help us find ways to expand the global network of potential bone marrow donors to help in the fight against cancer.

To get started, check out the Challenge brief, including the compelling video that Professor Aaker and 100K Cheeks created.  From there, send in your Inspirations so that we can all begin to explore and tackle this meaningful challenge. 

In other OpenIDEO news – we’ve been super impressed with all of the brilliant work the community has done during the Inspiration Phase of the Maternal Health and Mobile Technology Challenge. Together we collected nearly 300 valuable insights. We’ve just moved into the exciting Concepting Phase and can’t wait to see what folks come up with! We also look forward to your comments and applause on other’s ideas.

With two challenges on the boil, we hope you’ll be joining us and spreading the word – because pursuing social good works better together!
