Register as an Organ, Eye and Tissue Donor and Give Someone Hope this National Donor Sabbath

Wednesday, November 6, 2013

Join Carolina Donor Services in celebrating National Donor Sabbath this November 15-17, a time for people of all faiths to honor those who have given the lifesaving gift of organ, eye and tissue donation. Every year during this special time, donation and transplant organizations work closely with communities of faith to bring the lifesaving message of donation to congregations across the country.

Faith plays a significant role in the decision to register as a donor. All major religions support organ, eye and tissue donation, and believe it to be a final act of kindness and generosity. People of all faiths and denominations are encouraged to register as donors.

“While religions differ in many ways, one of the common points is positive, inspiring messaging that provides hope,” says Dawn Hall, Director of Communications at Carolina Donor Services. “By registering to be an organ, eye and tissue donor, you can provide hope to the more than 120,000 men, women and children across the United States currently awaiting organ transplants and the hundreds of thousands more in need of cornea and tissue transplants.”

Make a statement of hope and faith today and register to be an organ, eye and tissue donor.
