Only 40 lakh units of blood is available out of about 4 crore units of blood in each year in the nation. The direct contact donor and the recipient is not offered by many of the blood banks. This is critical when there is an emergency in need of blood. This aims to provide a direct link between the donor and the recipient. In this paper the blood donation management system (BDMS) which a web based application, which helps to manage the record of donors. Through web interface a blood bank database is created. In a central server the collected data is stored. Mobile application is used for sending notification via text message by using bulk message dispatch technique for providing the communication between the donor and the recipient. The recipient can also contact the donor with the help of the contact details available. Blood donors can also be searched from the mobile application, it is accessible only for registered members. The focus is to find the blood donors in an emergency situation and to provide direct link between the donor and the recipient.
