The smallest monkey in the world is the pygmy marmoset, with a body as
little as 5 inches (12 cm) and a tail length of about 7 inches (17 cm). As a
comparison, they are about the size of a hamster, can fit in the palm of a
human hand, and they weigh the same as a pack of cards.
To encourage more young people to donate blood, Sahlgrenska University
Hospital in Gothenburg, Sweden, sends a text to donors when their blood has
been dispensed to someone in need. A common issue with blood donation—along
with other types of charitable donations—is that if a donor doesn't know the
recipient, it's harder to convince them that donating is beneficial. But
with this system, which started in 2012, potential donors in Sweden have
proof that their contribution is going to good use.
