Pink ribbons for breast cancer

The Pink Ribbon has become a universal symbol and fashion statement for breast cancer. Can we create a similar symbol for bone marrow? Can it be wearable or visible in daily life?

What's a wearable symbol for bone marrow? How can we turn this into a movement?

To use pride of being a donor it should be something cool and immediately visible to others. We should create some fashionable item that you want to wear often and give it only to people who donated so everybody can see that they care about others. But because people don't always want to be a show off, we can tell them it is to encourage others to become a donor. This has a dual function; you increase exposure of the cause and you increase the desirability of being a donor.
