Give the Gift of Life: Become an Organ Donor

Would you be shocked to find out an average of 18 people die every day due to the shortage of available organ donors?

In total, there are more than 120,000 Americans awaiting their organ transplants, while millions of people die each year without signing up as organ and tissue donors. Sadly, an additional person shows up on the organ transplant list every 10 minutes.

A single organ donor has the potential to save up to 8 lives.

Register TODAY and join the other 100 million registered organ donors in the United States. Together, we can make a positive impact and start saving lives.
