This Tuesday (December 1, 2015), if you're feeling full of gratitude after celebrating Thanksgiving with your friends, family, and loved ones, participate in ORGANIZE's #GivingTuesday campaign! The Global Liver Institute has partnered up with this charitable non-profit dedicated to increasing organ donor registrations and driving awareness around a donor's ability to save the lives of many transplant patients. In fact, 22 Americans die each day waiting for an organ. The need is high, and our current infrastructure doesn't allow for easy access to registration.
ORGANIZE is here to provide a solution and debunk myths around organ donation, and GLI is ready to help! Not only do 1,500 people die each year waiting specifically for a liver to become available, there are currently 17,000 people and growing who are in need of a liver transplant. This Giving Tuesday, all we're asking is that you sign up to be an organ donor.
