Registering only takes 10 minutes and requires no blood, just a simple cotton swab of the mouth.

Promote Project Michelle by allowing us to direct interested parties to their office to pick up a home registration test kit, and complete it in person or take it home. It takes roughly 10 minutes to fill out the form and 1-2 minutes to complete the self-test kit which consists of a cotton swab cheek test. A potential donor would only need to sit down in a lobby chair for a short time.
Allow your reception staff to be trained for 30-45 minutes so that they may answer questions from potential donors registering.
Place a flyer in your office that promotes Project Michelle and summarizes the marrow/stem cell donor registration process.
Collect and mail the completed self-test kits (all postage will be provided)
