LoveTransfusion.org is a non-profit organization designed to help individuals facing a terminal illness, loss of a loved one or any other devastating situation.
Specifically, the service provides a means for people to express their love and concern for others online. Each "recipient" gets their own personal page where they can see the love transfusions as they come in.
The following screenshot is a very basic representation of what the page would look like (the actual design is yet to be determined):
Notice the map with arcs coming into the recipient. These are the "love transfusions" (the map area is being built in Flash) and they will remain on as a visual representation of being connected with the recipient at any time of the day. (NOTE: The example shows a map of the United States but this will be a free service for anyone with an Internet connection anywhere in the world.)
Other forms of love transfusions will include text messages, photos and videos which the recipient can view as often as they want.
Each recipient also has the option to post updates on the site to keep everyone informed of their progress/situation.
Everyone needs love. This site is designed so that family, friends and even strangers can lift each other up by sending love transfusions. Millions of people from all walks of life are hurting this very moment -- but expressions of love are incredibly powerful and can help heal even the most wounded heart.
As stated previously, the design of the site is yet to be determined and the cornerstone of that design will be the logo. This is where we need you...
The concept is loosely based on the premise of a blood-transfusion. Studies have shown that expressions of love from friends, family and even complete strangers are proven to provide not only emotional support but actual healing benefits to both mind and body.
The ideal logo will convey the essence of what a love transfusion is. Think of either medical icons or symbols along with a heart, heart beat or some other expression of love. Ultimately, we'd like the page to have a "medical monitor" type of feel to it. Imagine being in the hospital hooked up to a monitor showing your name, vitals, heartbeat etc. That's the look of the page, the logo should fit in without appearing out of place.
