Part of the idea is that the project should have a lasting physical presence
in the community (not that saving a life isn't lasting). In addition, the
Eagle candidate should have a project where he exercises leadership over
others. Simply lining up the local bloodmobile isn't an adequate leadership
and service experience in which other scouts can participate.
