Better Late Than Never

Today, I happened across the fact that yesterday, February 14th, is National Donor Day.

As I write this, 110, 296 people are waiting for an organ.
18 people will die each day waiting for an organ.
1 organ donor can save up to 8 lives.

organdonor.gov has a whole slew of stories you can read about people who are still living because of organ donation.

Are you an organ donor? Do you want to become one? Sign up at organdonor.gov.

If I die in a freak accident, I obviously wont be needing them any longer. I want my organs put in beer coolers and given to people who can actually use them!
