Bone marrow donation?

I recently signed up for a bone-marrow donor program, and I had to send off swabs of my cheek cells--DNA that they record in case it matches someone needing a bone-marrow transplant.

Now, when I took the swab, I had recently finished a handful of raisins, which leads me to wonder if that will increase the likelihood of matching the bone marrow of someone living in the Central Valley of California.
