Are you an organ donor?

I am registered to be an organ donor. I was even before I saw this video on Nick News (link courtesy of Moreena).

[Video is 22 minutes long, and requires that you have a box of tissues nearby.]

Make sure everyone in your family knows you want to donate your organs and ask them how they feel about donating theirs. Each organ donor can save 7 lives.

And don't forget that living donations are possible with kidneys, liver, and bone marrow.

oh, liz -- this is so excellent. yes, tissues needed.

i became an organ donor at 16, when i got my driver's license; my state has had that option on licenses for a long time, and my family knows how i feel. one of my friends was a living kidney donor for her sister. you and i have a young mutual friend who is alive because of donation.

Your advice is stupid.

Wow, Anonymous, that really hurts.

I mean, if you're going to be a troll, at least use an imaginative screen name. Show some respect for yourself.
