This year, the World Health Organization chose Italy as the location for the World Blood Donor Day Global Event, the celebration which every year, on 14 June, serves to thank voluntary blood donors worldwide.
In view of the event, that will take place at Parco della Musica in Rome, a hackathon has been launched to raise awareness of the need for safe blood among young people aged 18 to 45.
The goal of #HackDonor2021 is to develop digital solutions, and it includes five challenges:
- Social media journalism
- Communication campaign
- Videogame/Comic book
- Online music performance
The winner of each challenge will receive a prize and a sum that will be donated to associations of patients suffering from blood diseases and hematology and oncology foundations.
The deadline for submissions is 15 May 2021.
The call and further information are available on the website of Associazione DiCultHer.
