A 6-acre farm in downtown Cleveland, Ohio, which was created on open land next to a public housing project. The project has been an inspiring collaboration between different community groups, including several nonprofits and nearby restaurants.

Building on the post advocating for swabbing while waiting at the doctor's office, how about expanding the availability of kits to other everyday waiting places--the doctor's office, the DMV, the grocery store, train commutes, concert ticket booths,

The recent book "Nudge" analyzes our human tendencies in decision-making, and one conclusion is that people will usually follow preset defaults (one less decision to worry about). Why not make registering to be a bone marrow donor the default?

The Obama Campaign did it better than almost any other campaign I can recall in the last few years. The team used the myObama system to allow people to create their own profile, connect with other supporters near them, and to reach out to new donors.

There could be a competition where groups compete to sign up the most donors and complete swab testing--the winning group could be presented with a prize at the end of a specific time frame, to incentivize action and make the process fun.

Marika commented on Parenting a midst daily challenges

Love this, thanks so much for sharing Rosemary! Many of the Global Conversations posts from Tanzania and India have also focused on different aspects of your five pillars. One focuses specifically on the importance of finding fun and engaging ways to reframe learning, and mentions a very popular program in India that Galli Galli Sim Sim (the Indian Sesame Street) has launched. Check it out!

One other thing that several participants mentioned in their posts was the importance of the role of fathers in raising healthy children. You didn't call this out specifically, but I imagine that it's an issue you deal with at Plan. Here's one of the Global Conversations posts on this topic:
