Rich, I think this is a great idea!  You could even extend it to organs (although I think there may be a FB app for that already).  It would be a great FB 'badge' - little vampires (for blood) or Frankensteins (for organs).  A whole 'monsters for good' theme might work.  Real positive use of FB 'peer pressure'.  I don't have any time to help right now (sry), but will keep my ear to the ground for who might.  Keep us updated on it if it gets off the ground.

RH: I'm in.  I can put in time on promotion, advertising, etc.  Wish I could do more but I'm just a simple marketing puke.
BTW: If this works it could be extended to bone marrow donors and others.  There are databases existing and this could be a feed to those.  All of it could be put into a mashup with real-time data feeds.  All voluntary.

Out of a lunch today spawned an idea I'm running with. There is a huge issue in this country with logistics in regards to finding emergency blood donors. We are building a non profit to focus around a facebook app & website to allow people to sign up as emergency blood donors to recieve alerts via phone / email / rss / SMS if they are needed. I think this could be an amazing way to help the country. I've already started reaching out to all of my contacts hard and have gotten some great feedback. I'm sure there will be issues but it's simple enough and we think it will be very positive. We are looking for anyone that would be interested in volunteering or donating, time or money. Developers would be nice. Pro bono preferred though we could also pay if we find the right person. This whole thing started literally out a joke about "Facebook Vampires" a few hours ago but i'm running full court press with this. It's more important than anything else i'm working on. Please contact me if you want to get involved.
