Our challenge was to remind people of the magnitude of difference they can make by donating blood. Our idea sprung from two powerful insights in the Arabic language. The use of the phrase “a dot of blood” which translates to “a drop of blood” in English. And the use of the diacritic dot, in written Arabic, which can change the meaning of a word. Using these insights, we placed a “dot of blood” to change negative words into positive words; a literary demonstration of the powerful difference that blood donation can make.

When you add a dot to the word above its meaning becomes positive:
عناء (Ana-a) Suffering TO غناء (Gana-a) Prosperity
One dot of blood makes all the difference.
