The value it provides to residents

The Canadian Blood Services is currently spending 367$ for every pint of blood extracted. This adds up to half a billion a year in expenses. They aren't even getting enough donations. This is a problem Drip's mission is to increase donations and decrease costs for the Canadian Blood Services so that everyone that is ever in need of blood will have access to it.
Drip will also allow users to simple book donation appointments through the mobile application and be notified of upcoming appointments.
