While many people are giving the gift of love on February 14th, 120,000 people are waiting for the gift of life in the form of an organ transplant. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services in 1998 designated February 14th as "National Donor Day", to raise awareness for the constant demand for organ donors.

Every 10 minutes another person is added to the waiting list, and 22 die every day waiting for a life-saving transplant. One donor can potentially save or heal up to 75 lives!

Many states allow you to register as an organ donor whenever you renew your license, otherwise, follow the links below for more information.

There really isn't any reason not be an organ donor, and even most religions support organ donation as an act of compassion and kindness, as long as it doesn't impede the life or hasten the death of the donor.
