At this very moment, more than 86,000 people in the United States are anxiously awaiting an organ transplant. On average, 17 of these people will not live to see the next day. These are sobering figures, especially when you consider that just one organ, tissue, or eye donor can amazingly rescue as many as 75 people.
The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT), in conjunction with Donate Life, helps increase the donor pool by allowing you to register as a donor.
When you're at a PennDOT Photo Licensing Center to have your picture snapped for your driver's license or ID card, complete a donor card and hand it to the clerk; you'll be designated as a donor on your document.
If you're under 18, you'll need a signature from your parent or guardian to register.
To add or remove the donor designation after being issued a license or ID card, complete the form that applies to your situation:
Be sure to have the form notarized. You'll also be required to pay a fee (see fee chart at the bottom of the application).
Online registration is quick and easy. You must simply provide your driver's license or photo ID number, date of birth, and the last four digits of your Social Security number.
