VideoDonor: Encouraging a social donation conversation  |  September 13, 2013

Screen Shot 2013-09-13 at 10.22.43 AMWe were pleased to find VideoDonor, a video-sharing social media website designed to raise awareness for organ and tissue donation through the viewing and sharing of user-uploaded content. The site features the stories of real people’s experiences with donation and transplantation.

Considering that a new study published by the American Journal of Transplantation found that social media initiatives are helping to boost organ donor registration rates, VideoDonor founder Dean Jones, a British designer, certainly has his finger on the pulse of the industry.

The findings of the American Journal of Transplantation’s research suggest that social media platforms can be an effective tool for increasing organ and tissue donation. And, on the verge of launching a new iOS app, VideoDonor is a strong example of how science and technology can integrate for positive results.
