G3 VIDEO OF THE MONTH
Did you know that 18 people die every day waiting for an organ? Colette was lucky enough to receive a liver transplant when she needed one in 2002. She shares her story in this short interview.
NEWS OF THE MONTH
Here is a recent news clip about two people on opposite sides of an organ donation, who DID meet each other in real life. The recipient pledges to live out the donor’s bucket list.
Change the WORLD
IF you feel inclined to be an organ donor, have a discussion with your family and friends about this topic, and see if they are future organ donors as well. You can also register officially in your state at organdonor.gov!
[PS… Special Announcement!]
