  1. I’m a blood donor and a marrow bone donor. I lost a cousin to Leukemia in 2011 , he was just 25 .I can never stress how crucial this issue is .Beverlee De Gale made this a top priority but I haven’t heard much since her son passed away a few years back . I thought she’d be the de facto go to person for this.

    It is difficult to get the message out there , people just feel its a-unnecessary b-its none of their business c-they are afraid of hospitals +needles etc.. Our donor pool is extremely small , we need people with our genetic make up , both full blooded ones and mixed race ones.

    This add is problematic on so many levels , its the easiest way to insult black people and particularly our women . The message is basically , black women do not care about black people.And this add features a modern day blinged-up Gold digger ..Whoever designed this is a complete idiot .A typographic concept with the colors red and black would have done the job just fine.
