Be The Match Social Media Active Response Team (SMART) volunteers reach out through social media like Facebook, Twitter or blogs to engage and inspire people to get involved with our life-saving mission. We’re excited about the launch of our SMART volunteers and the program’s potential to connect more people to Be The Match.

See what they’re saying about Be The Match.
“Just completed my #SMART training for the @BetheMatch that signs up potential bone marrow donors across the US & Puerto Rico,” said Lisa Frank.
“I came home to an email with my first assignment as a member of the Social Media Active Response Team (SMART) volunteer force for Be The Match,” said Brian Koffman.
“I nominate @BeTheMatch for a Shorty Award in #nonprofit because…a donor saved my life and he has given me a hope,” said Rachael Leisy.
“This is truly an honor and privilege. A few weeks ago I was approached by Be The Match (aka the National Marrow Donor Program),” said Stacie Tamaki
