During National Donate Life Month this April, join us in celebrating eye, organ, and tissue donation in your community! Right now, more than 119,000 Americans are waiting for life-saving organ transplants, including approximately 7,000 people in Missouri, Kansas, and Illinois. What's more, Americans will require more than 48,000 cornea transplants and 1 million tissue transplants this year alone.
You have the potential to save and enhance these lives when you make the heroic pledge to donate. Register your decision to save and heal lives at RegisterMe.org and be sure to share your decision with your loved ones.
National Donate Life Month is an excellent opportunity to speak with your family, friends, and coworkers about donation. In order to save more lives, it’s important that we reach out in our communities to connect with people who are not yet registered to donate.
After speaking with your family, the most important thing you can do to make your own wishes known is to sign up on your state’s donor registry. By doing so, you make an official declaration of your intention to donate, which will make it that much easier on your family to fulfill your wishes.
Celebrate National Blue & Green Day on April 21
When we all work together to share the message of donation, more lives will be saved. Show your support of National Donate Life Month by wearing blue and green on National Blue & Green Day, Friday, April 21st, and tell others about the donor registry.
