Meet Our Founder and CEO, Lauren.
Finkelstein started Save One Person’s Global Media Campaign back in the year 2002.
Save One Person’s Mission is to save or dramatically improve the life OF EACH PERSON who’s in need of a living organ donor or bone marrow match through the power of the media.
Save One Person’s news alerts appear weekly on TV, Radio, Internet, and many national publications.
These news alerts ask the public to save that life featured, whether being a living organ donor or getting tested as a bone marrow donor,

learn MORE ABOUT OUR MISSION & VISION:
Save One Person and it’s Online Community Project SaveOnePerson.org are designed to save lives through utilizing the power of the media. And it works!
This media campaign #DoingGODswork is something the entire world can participate in.
Whether it is making sure a life to be saved gets on your local nightly news; seeing if you’re a bone marrow match for a child with Leukemia; or becoming a Live Organ Donor for a kidney or liver transplant patients — you too can make a real difference!
We can all participate in this media campaign #DoingGODswork through the power of the global media.
We believe there should be mandatory Save One Person units in every media outlet across the world. And that Save One Person Alerts should run on every Save One Person affiliate network each week.
A Save One Person News Alert would run globally for each specific person with a life-saving need. And a second Save One Person News Alert would run each week specifically featuring the life-saving need of someone local within each community…
For instance, when someone is in need of a bone marrow match, say, in Poland — their Save One Person News Alert would run in every Save One Person Affiliate Media Network across the globe such as the affiliate news stations in Boise, Idaho.
That same station in Boise, Idaho would run the Save One Person News Alert for the Person in need in Poland, as well as another Save One Person News Alert for someone with a life-saving need in right there in Boise.
In addition the on-air local personality or news program host internationally will ask people to call or write in with their own life-saving needs. And an assistant from the local affiliate and international branch will collect all pertinent information on the neediest cases from each community.
The various stations choose the life of the week to save and then a reporter goes on air and broadcasts the need to the public in the form of a Save One News Alert. The on-air personality asks the public to contact the person in need directly from that community and internationally. The people who are not featured on air are still directed to other organizations to provide assistance for that person in need.
IF YOU CAN HELP TAKE THIS VISION INTO MEDIA OUTLETS ACROSS THE WORLD: PLEASE CONTACT US ASAP. THERE’S NO TIME TO WASTE, SOMEONE’S LIFE IS DEPENDING ON YOU.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTION
WHAT IS SAVE ONE PERSON?
Save One Person is a New Non-Profit Community dedicated to saving lives One Person at a Time. #DoingGODSwork
We are proud to announce our new website SaveOnePerson.org
The goal of this web site is to be a direct resource where people who need an immediate medical miracle can find an angel willing to solve that problem (from people in need of living organ donors or bone marrow matches or any other medical need that isn’t being solved from the ordinary avenues.
The goal of our new website is to find a medical miracle or to give assistance to people who have exhausted all other avenues of hope. The donor and recipient can talk to each through this new SaveOnePerson.org Online Community.
If an individual needs a medical miracle, he or she can post their situation under the Listings Section: People in Need > Medical Miracles Needed.

Our goal is to facilitate the fastest connection between people who need immediate medical help and all those angels willing to solve each particular medical problem through our online community, here at Save One Person.
Each week we feature the story of one person who needs a medical miracle and publicize it in the media.
A countless amount of people, literally, would be dead today if it wasn’t for this work — from finding Living Organ Donors, to adding hundreds to the bone marrow registry just to mention a few of the ways we have saved lives over the years.
When all hope is gone, we ask all angels to come out to assist those who need it most through the media.
Since the inception of Save One Person in 2002, we have learned that hundreds of thousands of people are #DoingGODswork.
We have had hundreds of people contact us to be a Living Organ Donor to a complete stranger.
Before the Save One Person Online Community Project the public just did not have a place to put their kindness to work.
That vehicle has now arrived with the SaveOnePerson.org Online Community Website.
