SMS Saves Life by Sending Blood Type Alerts
During an unfortunate incident last week in India, a distressed son pleaded for his father's blood type via SMS. The father, suffering from a life-threatening ailment, was in dire need of a blood transfusion. The son contacted mobile carrier Bharti Airtel to broadcast the request to its subscribers. The SMS request resulted in an overwhelming response. Airtel has broadcast SMS appeals for blood donations in the past. (Source: Silicon.com) - more info
