Be an Organ and Tissue Donor
Help Create a Donation Friendly America!
Each organ and tissue donor saves or improves the lives of as many as 50 people. Giving the "Gift of Life" may lighten the grief of the donor's own family. Many donor families say that knowing other lives have been saved helps them cope with their tragic loss.

In partnership with Saturn Corporation and the United Auto Workers Union , donation organizations provide an opportunity for all Americans to visit a Saturn Dealerships in their area to give blood, join the National Marrow Registry and learn about how to commit to being an organ, eye and tissue donor
Why be a donor? Because the need is constant and growing.
Over 110,000 are in need of an organ transplant. And thousands of children and adults in our country have life-threatening blood diseases that could be treated by a marrow, blood stem cell or cord blood transplant. Someone in America needs blood every two seconds.
On this Valentine’s Day, celebrate the people you love by becoming a donor.
