I think it's a good idea in terms of collecting blood. Hospitals often have only enough blood supplies to last them a week at most, if not only a single day in high-traffic areas. Especially in the coming summer months the need for donated blood is crucial. In terms of feasibilty, it's pretty crazy. In China, where I doubt blood donation is as prevalent as it is in the US (which says something, considering that blood donation falls far short of where it could and perhaps should be in America), tracking such things might be possible if the company were to sponsor a specific blood drive for that purpose. It would just be too hard to orchestrate in the US, I think. A friendly PSA for you all - PLEASE consider donating blood and/or platelets! A cancer patient can use the platelets from up to eight pints of blood per day just to survive; a trauma victim can use upwards of ten. Your donation is an easily given gift which could save a life.
