Blood donation, green badge

In my last blog post, I talked about the gamification of blood donation.  Just thought I'd follow up since today I earned the green badge, er, bandage today.  Funny thing, it made me late for a gamification conference call.  Bonfils doesn't offer points or a virtual economy (although a friend of mine recently got a pretty nice messenger bag) but I did get some bottled water, trail mix and cheez-its, so there is that.

Blood donation

I'm still not sure that the addition of a virtual economy would get me to donate more often (not having to reschedule every time a new meeting was added to my calendar might work better than that). But then again, the concept of gamification of blood donation got me to sign up, update my profile on the donor site and actually go.  And they matched my bandage to my bangles.
