You can organize a blood drive in support of MD Anderson Cancer Center at your high school! This would provide life-saving blood for cancer patients, while teaching those involved valuable life lessons about giving back to the community.

Another way to promote blood donations for MD Anderson, while earning money, is to enter their Blood Bank High School Scholarship Program. This program allows seniors the opportunity to raise awareness and educate the public about the importance of donating blood for cancer patients.
To enter, submit a media project that educates and motivates individuals to donate blood for MD Anderson Cancer Center patients. Each project will be evaluated and scored by an independent committee, and points are awarded for creativity, content, and persuasiveness.
Possible types of projects include a commercial, app, song, documentary, webpage, or any other professional, creative media. Fourteen scholarships totaling $25,000 will be awarded to Houston-area high school seniors, and your ideas will help further the mission of Making Cancer History!
Pictured below are high school students who recently won awards through the scholarship program.
