It’s National Donate Life Blue & Green Day – Are You Registered to be an Organ Donor?
Did You Know: 114,000 men, women and children await lifesaving organ transplants.*
Even the largest football stadium in the United States could not fit the number of patients on the national transplant waiting list. Someone new is added to the list every 10 minutes.
Since the late ´80s, approximately 750,000 transplants have taken place. In 2018 alone, more than 17,500 donations gave recipients a new chance at life.
Organ donations save lives every single day, but the demand for organ, eye and tissue donations is greater than the number of registered donors. In fact, 22 people die each day because the organ they need to live is not donated in time. That’s 8,030 deaths a year.
Why Become an Organ Donor?
Only 58% of the American population are registered.
When someone donates their organs, they save up to 8 lives.
When someone donates their corneas, they restore sight to 2 people.
When someone donates their tissue, they help heal 75 people.
One single organ donor can give the gift of life and health to up to 85 people.
