Transplant Informers hosts City Hunter DVD sweepstakes

Heads up, giveaway lovers!

We’re not the only ones holding giveaways this month: We’ve gotten word of a City Hunter DVD sweepstakes being held by Transplant Informers (a blog in association with the Asian American Donor Program), which has launched a project using Korean dramas as an outlet to educate about bone marrow donation. (Using K-drama powers for good over evil — we approve.)

As City Hunter fans will recall, the drama features a bone marrow transplant storyline. (And if you haven’t seen it, you can win the DVD set and see it firsthand.) Using the show as a launching pad for educational commentary about bone marrow donation, Transplant Informers is giving away copies of the drama’s DVD boxset. It seems like a creative way to spread the word about a worthy cause, and spread the City Hunter love around.

To participate: Complete this survey and you’ll be entered to win.

The City Hunter sweepstakes will run till January 20. For more information: http://transplantinformers.com/2011/12/20/city_hunter_kdrama_sweepstakes_1/.

Grrrr...

But somehow I had a hunch it would be US-only.

Well, I guess it's a Region 1 DVD anyhow so that would do no good.

D'oh....
I didn't think it'd be US-only....
Well, at least now I know about this association, I'm more aware of bone marrow donation and that I could help a human being.
Good marketing move, folks!

What a wonderful idea!! I'm already on the US Donor Registry List, but it never hurts to re-establish contact with a lateral group... especially when there's prizes involved! :)

Forgive me for spamming this post, but I've been helping get the word out that there is a young boy in the Bay Area named Kyle Crawford who is in desperate need of a bone marrow transplant after being diagnosed with Aplastic Anemia. He is half Caucasian and half Chinese, which really narrows down the donor pool greatly. Here's Kyle's story: http://tinyurl.com/78o3c3f. If you would like to help, contact your local Donor Bank through the link in the article. Thanks!!

NO FAIR!!! I'm in Puerto Rico, which is technically US but they limit it to the 50 states and Washington DC? NO Fair.

I'm a registered bone marrow, blood, organ donor. No fair!!!!!

Why just USA! What about all the drama lovers from other countries like France!
But it's a nice project and it will convert more people to korean dramas!

Huge thanks to everyone who is participating in the survey and sweepstakes! It is great to see the Dramabeans community rally, not only for the love of City Hunter, but also for increasing awareness about bone marrow donation. Each response already makes an impact, helping us to get a better sense of how to do better education and outreach work.

We'll have a couple more Kdrama/transplant giveaways in the coming months, so stay tuned!

To those of you outside the US, we wish we could extend the giveaway to you too. But you can always encourage your local donor registry to start a similar initiative. Here's a list of registries worldwide(under registry information): http://www.worldmarrow.org/

I already bought the "City Hunter" (Region #1
USA) DVD from Yes Asia, but I expect I'll wear
my first copy out from playing it so much, so
I'll enter this contest, anyway. It's a quality
item and the bonus extra is English sub-titled,
too. HOORAY! :)

PS....Except for some mistakes in the English,
(for example: instead of saying "my COLLEAGUES
will study these documents" the sub-titles say:
"my COLLEGES will study these documents")
this DVD is pretty close to perfect.

I LOVE the soundtrack, too. Although the very
annoying song "It's all right" almost wins the
BOF's "Almost Paradise" award, which we all
know is pretty hard to do. Ha, ha.

Two things that I forgot to add:

#1. How long will it take Korean TV big shots
to realize that the "Korean wave" is world-wide?
Personally, I'm very surprised that they even
came out with a Region #1 DVD of "City Hunter."
They obviously have ~ NO CLUE ~ that people
in many other countries around the world would
buy their TV and movie DVDs.

#2. I'm certainly no doctor, but the bone marrow
transplant scene in this drama, looks to me like a
blood transfusion just going through extra "loops"
in some piece of machinery. Remember, that...ALL...
Korean TV shows have the scene where after being
hit by a car and while the victim is still on the street,
you should grab that person and shake them until
they open their eyes and answer the question:
"Are you OK?" :(

70% of bone marrow procedures are done through blood transfusion these days. injecting a needle in your pelvis through your bone marrow is somewhat archaic but is still being done (more so as a last resort though) :)
