Reviews for Music Saves Lives Inc

Rating: 5 stars  

Back in the summer of 2009 MSL helped guide my friend and I towards setting up a blood drive at our local school. It had turned out pretty well and were able to register around 30 new blood donors with the Red Cross. Music Saves Lives gave incentive for a younger audience to come and participate actively within the community by giving away special passes or 'meet and greets' at local shows. This sparked a lot of new volunteer opportunities and as well brought in first time blood donors that would otherwise not have gone in and donated. MSL also talks about other charities and organizations that need help as well; by supporting the music scene, the scene supports MSL as well.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

After setting up a blood drive I now know how important it is to give blood, if and when possible. I've also been able to bring in more friends to donate now that I know most of the eligibilty requirements and as well promote MSL blood drives in my area during the summer months.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Nothing I can think of at the moment.

I've known the founder of Music Saves Lives (Russel Hornbeek) for over a decade and have always found him to have good character and integrity. Those same qualities apply deeply to the nonprofit he has built. I wholeheartedly support him.

Seeing lives changed.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Help get the word out more.

Music Saves Lives does an awesome job of connecting people to important causes. MSL gives everyday people a chance to do something great for others, either by donating blood or signing up for the marrow registry, and in return they receive fantastic opportunities to become closer to the music scene. It's such a simple concept to take something that everybody loves - music - and to use it in a way that really helps people in need. How can anybody NOT want to be part of Music Saves Lives?

As sad as it is, much of today's society expects something in return for any act of kindness. Music Saves Lives does an awesome job of giving back to those who give blood by offering backstage access to many different shows. With knowledge of that promise to gain premier access to their favorite bands, I've personally seen many people take the leap to donate blood who have never done so before. One donation can save up to three lives; that's a big deal.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Perhaps I would reach out to more genres of music. I know tons of country and reggae music fans who would love to donate for some backstage access to shows!

I believe that Music Saves Lives is doing a tremendous service. They are helping a younger generation connect music & entertainment and important life-saving causes. I know that I was not willing to donate blood before, but afterwords considered it so that i could receive a V.I.P. pass at for Vans Warped Tour.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

donating blood for a v.i.p. pass to an all day music festival

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

make sure that more people knew about it, and possibly have more donation centers in the states.

I've had people personally thank me for donating blood through Music Saves Lives.

Maybe make it a little more spread out to rural areas.

Get more donors so we can save more people.

Music Saves Lives has been phenomenal at connecting youth to activism, and doing so in a fun, non-traditional way. I've had the pleasure of working along side them for about a year now, and have enjoyed every minute of it! It's refreshing to see them working so hard on such a positive movement!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I've survived thanks to blood transfusions, and MSL has been able to multiple the supply in the lowest months! With out orgs like this, I may not have been able to write this review!

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I wouldn't change them!
