Organ Donation

Donate, not only money! That was the suitable tagline here I would mention.

Recently, ongoing through one proud news about TN, made me write this post. It’s all about,

ORGAN DONATION

TN stands 3rd in organ donation. Recently TN launched a special site called TRANSTAN with the Android mobile app to register for organ donation and 5933 organs have been received so far. The state’s program has done well and people have been donating. So why don’t you?

People who have registered already through online websites as donors and the mistake many do often is not letting their dear one’s aware of their decision.

Did you know, how many of your friends registered to award their organs?

Creating attention is all needed. You can at least let your parents know about your interest in organ donation. It all takes 10 minutes to save many people’s lives than you guess. I have also mentioned valid Govt. websites link to register yourself as a donor but it doesn’t impact a lot till you alert people. Make your closed one’s aware that you have shown interest in donating parts.

Convincing your parents was the toughest one. No doesn’t always mean No. You can make it.

Make your closed one’s aware that, you are interested in donating your organs. I am letting my friends know that I would like to donate. I pledge.

Mentioning some interesting facts to amaze you,

One Person,

Organ donation can save up to 7 lives.
Eye donation can give sight up to 2 people.
Single unit of your blood can do a lot than you think, at least a year.

Most of all,

You can live twice.

Sounds interesting? Excited to help?
