"Gift of Life focuses its recruitment efforts on college campuses and has more than 100 campus ambassadors scattered in every state."
"More than 100 campuses across the country, including Syracuse University, participated in the first ever World Marrow Donor Day on Saturday...part of a program called the Gift of Life Campus Ambassadors."
"As a result of swabbing students last semester, a match was found for a six year old boy with leukemia."
"I loved the idea of having a rewarding internship where I'm actually helping others and potentially saving lives. That's what keeps me motivated, the fact that the work I'm putting into this isn't going to waste at all."
"I decided to apply because I believe that when our lives are involved in changing the lives of others, our own lives will be changed for the better."
"Gift of Life’s Campus Ambassador Program (CAP), which includes 105 college students, from Harvard to the University of Hawaii, aims to register thousands of students via a simple cheek swab."
"It just means a lot to me to give back to people that have suffered this, who have been on the receiving end of a donation and on the giving end."
"You cannot truly experience the feeling of satisfaction, self-fulfillment and selflessness all at the same time without being a part of this huge movement."
"UVM senior Dan Batista wants volunteers to raise awareness about the possibility of saving a life and making a difference within the community."
"Down the road, if I get a call that I registered someone who was a match and saved someone's life, that would be the greatest feeling."
"I don’t want patients to ever have to hear, ‘We have the technology to save you, but we don’t have a genetic match for you.’ I want patients to live the longest life they possibly can with the highest quality possible."
"To date, Gift of Life at MSU has swabbed over 700 students and seeks to get the word out about their organization so this number will grow throughout the coming year."
