Music Saves Lives(R) Gives Youth Free Tickets To Resolve A Healthcare Crisis Young People Can Run Blood Drives Around The US and Attend The Vans Warped Tour Free‏

For more than 10 years Music Saves Lives has taken on the mission of blood centers across the nation and around the world to educate youth about the importance of blood donation, and to help build a new generation of young blood donors.  2016 marks the 11th year working with the Vans Warped Tour, the longest running summer music festival in the US.  This tour focuses on bringing new and upcoming music to a young audience.  Over 500,000 young people between 15-20 years old attend more than 40 dates every summer.  Music Saves Lives has tapped into this crowd and found a unique way to solve a crisis.  Individuals who organize and run successful blood drives with partnering blood centers across the nation and in Canada receive a free ticket with VIP access to the Vans Warped Tour concert.  To entice the friends of the young people running the drive, those that donate blood get a special voucher good at the Vans Warped Tour for meet and greets and photos with bands that play at the festival.  In most states the minimum donor age is 16 years old.

Right now Music Saves Lives is looking for motivated young people in high school or college that love new music and have the desire to save lives, run a blood drive and attend the Vans Warped Tour this summer.

Fact: With advances in medical treatments and an aging population, the demand for donated blood continues, as fewer people are becoming lifelong donors.[ii]
