Make a difference by donating your organs, eyes or tissues.
Every hour five new names get added the nation's organ transplant waiting list. It's a sobering statistic, especially when you consider that this equates to 120 people a day. But because there aren't enough donated organs, one person dies every 90 minutes while anxiously awaiting an organ transfer.
It doesn't cost you ―or our family―anything to become a donor. All major religions in the United States support organ and tissue donation.
North Dakota's Department of Transportation (NDDOT) makes it very easy to indicate your desire to donate your organs and tissues. Just complete and sign the donor identification section on your license application or state ID card. You'll need to be at least 18 years old, though. You can also register when you renew your license or ID card.
The state does not require a witness when signing, but strongly encourages you to notify your family of your wishes.
