In the past 3 months we organized 4 actions in order to recruit potential marrow donors to be enlisted in the Registry. The actions took place place in St. Petersburg, Petrozavodsk, Kostomuksha, and Archangelsk. In total, about 300 donors have been recruited. Many young people are eager to become marrow donors and give hope to the deadly ill patients! However, the rate of funding we obtain via GlobalGiving has slown down, and thus, our ability to type the recruited donors and include them into the internationally indexed database of the Registry is strongly limited until enough funding is obtained.

We are working hard to convince the authorities and local business of the importance of marrow donorship development, but in fact our main support comes from you -- ordinary people who are not indifferent to suffering of patients with leukemia and similarly dangerous diseases, against which no one is secured.

Hence, we are looking forward to get more support from you -- our donators -- via GlobalGiving, which has proved to be a robust and well designed platform, to reach our ultimate goal -- grow the marrow donor database and thus -- due to your unmercenary help --- be able to save lives of deadly ill patients!

Thanks to the aid we got through GlobalGiving we are now able to increase the number of marrow donors in the Karelian Registry by 21 people. This is not many, but this adds hope to the dealy ill patients we care about.

So far, two donor draft actions have been carried out: one in St. Petersburg and one in Petrozavodsk. We were happy to see that many young people are eager to be listed as marrow donors. In fact, there are more volunteers than we can type: typing is most expensive part of our job, and the funding we obtained during the September campaign at GlobalGiving was enough to draft only 21 donors.

We are looking forward to attract more funding through GlobalGiving, increase the donor list and thus reach our main goal -- add hope to the leukemia patients, who are waiting for their donors!
