Recycle Yourself !

Become an organ donor. Save a life.

How?

Healthy Planet, Healthy People.  That's our motto.  But it isn't always that easy.  Some people do everything right, but they are just are down on their "healthy" luck.  That's where you come in.  You could help save someone's life by donating a part of yourself.  A part that they may need.
It sounds overwhelming, but becoming a donor is really pretty simple. All you have to do is sign up and you could save a life. Many people believe they are too old or not healthy enough to sign on, but that can be untrue. 
What can you donate?
There are many kinds of donors, they include: organ donor, bone marrow, cord blood and stem cell. 
How do you donate and learn more?
To sign up or learn more, go to one of the appropriate registries.  You can even sign up to be an organ donor at the registry of motor vehicles in your state and it will appear on your license.
International Stem Cell Registry 
Where to Find a Bone Marrow Match: Be The Match. Org
Where to find an Organ Donor Match  Matching Donors. Org 
What if you can't donate, but want to help?
If you can't be a donor, do some other good. Perhaps you can be a volunteer! That is another way of giving part of yourself and enhancing someone's life.
Did you know?  
  • 1 organ donor can save up to 8 lives 
  • 18 people will die each day waiting for an organ
  • 6,000 people are waiting for a matched stem cell donor in North America alone
  • Each day, an average of 75 people receive organ transplants
  • Only 30% of patients in need of a marrow or blood cell transplant find a matched donor in their family.
Thanks for being a Planetpal.
