Happy Donor Day

The stores are sold out of chocolate and flowers.  Must be Valentines Day!  But did you know that February 14th is also National Donor Day?

So today, when you are done signing that sappy card for your lover, take a few minutes to give another gift. You can find out how to register in your state as a donor by visiting Donate Life America.  It only takes a few minutes.

There are 123,379 people waiting on a life saving transplant.

Every 10 minutes another name is added to that list.

On average 21 people die each day, waiting for a transplant.

90% of Americans say they support donation but only 30% know how be become a donor.

Lets change this.  We need more donors.  We need more awareness.  Talk about being an donor with your family and friends.  Encourage them to register as well.  

Share the love.  
Happy Valentines and Donor Day!
