With more than 3,000 Ohioans waiting today for a lifesaving organ transplant, the need for more registered organ, eye and tissue donors is a public health crisis. To educate and unite Ohioans around the solution, Donate Life Ohio, a coalition of the state’s organ, eye and tissue recovery agencies, will host “Don’t Wait, Save 8” on October 8 – Ohio’s first-ever online donation registration drive encouraging citizens to register as organ, eye and tissue donors.
The vast majority of the five million people in Ohio who have registered their decision to be an organ, eye and tissue donor have done so during a visit to the BMV. The “Don’t Wait, Save 8” message encourages Ohioans to take action and register their decision to save lives immediately online instead of waiting until their next visit to the BMV. This one-day virtual organ, eye and tissue donation registration drive also aims to inspire conversations about the impact donation can have on family, friends, neighbors, colleagues, their community and fellow Ohioans.
