DMV.ORG Actively Supports National Donor Day
February 08, 2016
ENCINITAS, CA -- DMV.ORG, the nation's largest independent resource for DMV-related information and services, today announced its support of organ donation by helping to facilitate the registration of organ donors.
To that end, DMV.ORG helps connect visitors with organizations that facilitate organ donation registration in their state on http://www.dmv.org/organ-donor.php with the click of a button. Also, DMV.ORG will support organ donation registration by sharing organ donation facts and helping to dispel organ donation myths on the company's Facebook and Twitter accounts from Monday, February 8 through National Donor Day on Sunday, February 14.
With corporate social responsibility as a core principle of the business, DMV.ORG has developed a comprehensive Impact Program that includes Three Avenues of Impact to benefit society. The Three Avenues of Impact each have a unique approach to give back:
1) Local GiveBack: A quarterly event that engages the DMV.ORG team with a local San Diego county charity with the aim to make a difference in the community.
2) Financial GiveBack: A biannual donation to nonprofit organizations dedicated to creating positive social change in the domain of transportation, including organizations whose mission it is to eliminate distracted driving or to provide free hands-on driver's training.
3) Online GiveBack: An initiative that leverages DMV.ORG's large web and social media presence to bring greater awareness to, and make a difference on, high impact issues that affect all of us, such as organ donation.
Bob Kurilko, President & Chief Operating Officer at DMV.ORG, said, "Organ donation is a topic that has touched some of our team members and their families in a very personal way. We're fortunate to be in a position to leverage our large web audience and bring much-needed exposure to the important topic of organ donation; by facilitating the registration of organ donors, we know that we can play a meaningful role in changing lives."
"We launched our first organ donation page in March of 2011 on www.dmv.org and built out a bigger campaign in 2013," said Shiloh Boss, Director of Organizational Development. "Since then, we have helped share the need for organ donation with upwards of half a million people."
National Donor Day, started by the Saturn Corporation and its United Auto Workers partners in 1998, with the support of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and other nonprofit health-related organizations, focuses on the need for donations of human organs, eyes, tissues, marrow, platelets, and blood.
