Facebook blood groups
Natal is the Israeli Trauma centre for victims of terror and war, where finding a quick blood donor match is the difference between life and death. Israeli advertising agency, Twentythree, redefined social collaboration by launching Facebook blood groups – the largest online pool of emergency blood donors that can be contacted in a click.

Thousands of people joined as national media covered the story. When the Israeli Red Cross sent requests for urgent blood donations, Facebook blood groups helped save the life of a 15-year-old girl by finding a donor in a matter of hours.
