Panagiotis Sfikas, Natalia Kritsali & Alexandros Sotiropoulos leaders stamp

Bloode’s idea began in 2012, when Natalia Kritsali and Natalia Bougadeli were still students and were confronted with the problem, when Natalia Bougadeli’s grandmother needed blood. 2014 finds Natalia Kritsali in Athens at Athens University of Economics and Business and Natalia Bougadeli, in U.S.A., at New York University. However, the idea of ​​Bloode remained active. So, Natalia decided to create a group based in Athens, and thus began with Panagiotis and Alexander, students of the Athens University of Economics and Business. Bloode’s team aims to increase the proportion of blood donors, to cover the need for blood and to inform and promote the blood donation. Few of the first steps were the organization of voluntary blood donations, the creation of the website and the creation and satisfaction of real-time, ongoing calls for blood made by patients or their relatives. Afterwards, the team expanded to information events and educational programs, followed by the design of the application for mobile smartphones. Their vision is to establish the first online community of blood donors and volunteers in Greece, in order to overcome this important social problem. Since their beginning Bloode has completed 9 events, has gathered 200 units and has saved 593 lives.
