Want to Save Lives at some of your favorite concerts, festivals and events?
Thank you for your interest in being part of our mission of saving lives, one concert at a time. Volunteering is fun, easy and tangible! YOU can literally help us save a life while attending some of your favorite events.
Every potentially lifesaving match we find is tracked back to the very event and team of volunteers who made that match possible. Love Hope Strength is looking for passionate individuals who will help save lives by registering people to become marrow donors at your favorite concert, festival or community event.
What we do
Through our GET ON THE LIST campaign, we register people ages 18 – 55 to the National Marrow Registry with DKMS. All it takes is the completion of a consent form and a cheek swab for someone to GET ON THE LIST. If that swab matches someone in need, a life could be saved through an outpatient procedure.
Why we need your help
We have thousands of events and opportunities to set up booths all over the country and with only 2% of the population on the registry, we need volunteers to help us set up at these events and get more people signed up to GET ON THE LIST.
Please take a moment to familiarize yourself with our volunteer program. Read through the following guidelines, fill out the form, watch our training video and you’ll be on your way! You will then be able to check our calendar of events online for concerts in your area. Don’t see events in your area? Suggest an event and we will teach you how to run a drive on your own. It is that simple!
