Gift of Life Mitzvah Project
Celebrate your bar/bat mitzvah by giving someone the gift of life!
Did you know that your Mitzvah Project could save lives? Here’s how you can help!
- Set up a recruitment drive at your synagogue or community center to add new marrow and stem cell donors to Gift of Life’s registry, and you could be the one to help cure a patient’s blood cancer! Gift of Life offers personalized volunteer training and individual guidance every step of the way.
- Raise funds to sponsor new donor kits for those who are joining the registry. Lab testing of each swab kit costs Gift of Life $60 to process, and every new donor we add to the registry has the potential to save a life!
Gift of Life will train you how to run a drive or fundraise, or both! We'll send you all the supplies you need, such as swab kits and giveaways, flyers and support materials.
Your Personal Donor Circle
To support your efforts, we will create a unique Donor Circle just for you – it's your own personal Gift of Life web page. On your Donor Circle page you can share your message on social media, fundraise, and track the number of swabs you have collected and sponsored. Over time you will see how many people from your donor circle become matches for patients, and go on to donate stem cells or bone marrow and save someone's life. Years from now, your Donor Circle will remain active and you'll be able to see your livesaving impact in real time.
