Do you know how many registered donors there are in your state? According to our registry there are 2,999,471 donors registered in the state of Texas. I know that seems like a lot, after all Texas is a huge state. Guess how many donors Florida has? 6,879,539. Seriously Texas? Hopefully next year I will help add a few to our growing registry.
As of today there are 116,570 people waiting on the list with me. Between January and August of this year there were only 18,986 transplants preformed. Every 10 minuets a name is added to the list and 18 people die on average each day waiting for a transplant. We need more people to register so that more people can be saved.
Will you help me reach my goal next year? Why wait, register now. I'm starting my goal now! The sooner the better. Head over to Donate Life America and register to be an organ donor. And let me know that you did. Maybe I should give away something to the first few people? I do have some very nice Donate Life bags...
