Next Monday sees the start of National Transplant Week. While UK based (at present) the aim of the week is to encourage people to donate their organs after their deaths.
Why should you do this?
Well perhaps the most obvious it that you can help people to live after your deaths. Indeed the US government suggest that you could help up to eight people! Not just is a life saved but in many cased the recipients of the organ will have considerable improvement in their quality of life.
At the same time the families of organ donors , very often, feel some respite from their grief knowing that their loved ones are helping other for many years after their passing.
So why not register as an organ donor today if you have not already done so. In the UK you can do it here.
Obviously there are many other useful links for these and other countries. Please feel free to share any which you think would be of use in the comments box below.
Finally, as you can see, we have a number of useful graphics which have been created for National Transplant Week. Would it be possible for you to share either then of the page so we can encourage as many people as possible to register as an organ donor.
